Market breadth is overwhelmingly positive. Of the 2082 stocks traded today, 1382 showed gains, and 606 showed losses.

Benchmark indices remained moderately higher amid consolidation in morning while the broader markets continued to outperform. Oil and HDFC Group stocks supported the market while infra and select banks stocks were under pressure.

HDFC twins are the major contributors to the Sensex gains. HDFC Limited stock is trading higher by 1.4% at Rs 1510 per share. HDFC Bank stock is trading higher by 0.89% at Rs 1460 per share.

GAIL is the top gainer in the Sensex trading higher by 3.1% at Rs 406.35 per share.

The 30-share BSE Sensex was up 33.78 points at 29,370.35 and the 50-share NSE Nifty gained 11.30 points at 9,114.80 while the BSE Midcap and Smallcap indices gained more than half a percent on positive breadth.

More than two shares advanced for every share falling on the BSE.

Investors remained cautious about earnings season after Yes Bank’s bad asset quality performance and muted earnings by IT majors.

GAIL, Grasim, Adani Ports, HDFC and Ambuja Cements are among the gainers, whereas Yes Bank, ICICI Bank, Axis Bank, Aurobindo Pharma and Tata Power are losing sheen on NSE in the first trading hour.
