Sensex and Nifty settled on a higher note today.

New Delhi:

India’s equity benchmarks traded higher on Thursday after a dismal start, buoyed by gains in auto, technology and pharmaceutical stocks. A drop in crude oil prices boosted domestic sentiment today.

Brent crude futures fell about 1.91% to $109.61 a barrel as investors recalibrated assessments of recession risk and fuel demand.

“Commodity prices are lower, especially oil, and that’s relatively good for India as it’s largely an importer. That could have a positive impact on domestic inflation,” he said. Narendra Solanki, head of research at Anand Rathi Investment Services, told Reuters news agency.
