 Indian equities continued to rise for the second day on Friday tracking positive global cues. Banks and realty stocks aided the up move. India VIX was down by 1% to end at 11.76 levels.

At the close, the benchmark 30-share index, BSE Sensex added 138.59 points or 0.26% at 52,975.80 with 12 components registering rise.  Meanwhile, the broad based NSE Nifty climbed by 32 points or 0.20% at 15,856.05 with 22 components registering rise.

Tata Steel  contributed rise of 81.67 points in the Sensex.  It was followed by Sun Pharmaceutical Industries  (46.13 points), Bharti Airtel  (29.28 points), Maruti Suzuki India  (17.98 points) and State Bank Of India (15.08 points).

However, Mahindra & Mahindra  contributed fall of 70.73 points in the Sensex.  It was followed by Housing Development Finance Corporation  (61.21 points), Tata Consultancy Services  (54.58 points), Bajaj Auto  (54 points) and Hindustan Unilever (35.33 points).

Major gainers in the 30-share index were ICICI Bank (3.18%), ITC (2.56%), SBI (1.69%), HCL Technologies (1.60%), Axis Bank (1.17%), Bajaj Finserv  (1.03%), Sun Pharma (0.99%) and Tech Mahindra  (0.99%).

On the other hand, Larsen & Toubro (1.80%), Hindustan Unilever (0.82%), Reliance Industries  (0.74%), NTPC (0.67%), Asian Paints (0.54%), HDFC Bank (0.43%), IndusInd Bank (0.38%) and Bajaj Finance (0.30%) were the biggest losers in the Sensex.

Market breadth was positive with 1,579 advances against 1,667 declines.

Global cues were positive following the upbeat earnings and post the ECB statement that the interest rates would stay at their current record low levels until it sees inflation "durably" reaching the bank's new target of 2%. However Asian markets ended on a mixed note as covid worries continued to take toll while investors also monitored Chinese tech stocks after regulatory concerns resurfaced.

Domestically, Nifty ended higher for second consecutive day following positive global cues and good earning season so far which is giving confidence to the investors of quicker economic rebound. However, Nifty closed lower for the week as the surging Delta variant cases continue to worry the market. 

India‚Äôs unicorn, Zomato made a stellar debut on the bourses at 53% premium and entered in Top 100 listed companies in value terms, with a market capitalisation of over Rs 1 lakh crore.  

Commenting on the market outlook, Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services said, "In the coming week, markets will first react to results of three majors Reliance Industries, ITC and ICICI Bank on Monday whose weightage in Nifty is ~20%. It will track global cues for further market direction while lot of stock specific action will be seen given the earnings season in progress.

Overall, the result season so far has been healthy and is providing g support to the market which has shown strong resilience even though it faces headwinds from the advent of a possible third COVID wave and persistent inflation readings prompting a potential rate increase.

Technically too, Nifty formed a Doji on Daily scale while a Bullish Hammer sort of candle on weekly scale which indicates that declines are being bought but follow up is missing at higher zones. Now, it has to hold above 15,800 zones to witness an up move towards 15,962 and 16,000 levels while on the downside support exists at 15,750 and 15,700 levels."
