BSE Sensex Closes Higher on Fourth Straight Day

Despite falling 250 points from its day’s high, the BSE Sensex managed to end Wednesday at 38,598.99, which is 92.90 points higher than its Tuesday’s close. The BSE Sensex has managed to close on a positive terrain for the fourth consecutive day. The gain of 0.24% might not be significant, but it’s given investors a sigh of relief. 

The afternoon session saw the Indian stocks dropping, giving away most of the gains made in the day. The BSE Sensex dropped a massive 249.71 points from the day’s peak of 38,666.38 points. The banking and consumer stocks dragged down the benchmark indices to counter the gains made due to appreciation in pharma stocks. 

The NSE Nifty too manage to close positively on Wednesday. The Nifty index played between 11,481.05 and 11,4111.10 points. It finally settled at 11,464 points to mark the close of Wednesday’s trading hours. A fall in the banking stocks negated the gains made by Nifty due to a rise in the information technology stocks.
