The barometer opened higher at 25,948.30 and shot up further to a high of 26,135.00 after WPI-based inflation dipped to a five-month low of 5.19 per cent in July.

  • Brokers said besides encouraging earnings by several blue-chip companies, foreign capital inflows on continued optimism on long term growth prospects of the economy buoyed sentiments.

  • Nifty to maintain 7650-7850 levels for the next few days, says Sandeep Wagle. Today is a much better day than yesterday, though the Nifty was up at the end even yesterday but the confidence was not there. I still look at 7850. Even if it crosses that, it may not sustain there. Broadly, 7650-7850 is the range I look at over the next few days and more, he says.

  • Expect very stock-selective investment regime for next 3-6 months, says Rashesh Shah of Edelweiss Group. There is a sense of optimism. But the hurry to invest, the hurry to buy almost any stock that was going up has gone away and most investors are saying they will study companies' earnings growth, management etc. So it is going to be a slow and steady, very stock-selective investment regime for the next three to six months, he says.

  • Markets are closed on Friday for the Independence Day holiday but traders would be looking forward to newly elected Prime Minister Narendra Modi's speech for clues to his reform plans for the world's largest democracy.
