Sensex up 350 pts, Nifty hovers around 8200; heavyweights lead

Relief rally continued in morning trade after renewed buying by FIIs seen for the second consecutive session yesterday. They net bought Rs 400 crore worth of equity shares after selling nearly Rs 17,000 crore worth of equities in previous 18 consecutive sessions due to likely Fed rate hike in December and US elections. 

11:30 am FII View: Once the western market rally is over, emerging markets are likely to outperform, believes Richard Harris, Chief Executive of Port Shelter Investment Management.

Western market rallies, he said, are usually short-lived. The market has already discounted a probable rate hike by the US Federal Reserve.

Policies of President elect Donald Trump will be positive for the US economy, which is why US is seen moving ahead now. Global tensions like Brexit and geopolitical issues are seeing some relief now.

Among emerging markets, India is becoming less volatile, Harris added.

11:20 am Nov auto sales: Domestic passenger vehicle sales rose 1.82 percent to 2,40,979 units in November, from 2,36,664 in the same month last year.

Domestic car sales ticked up to 1,73,606 units as against 1,73,111 in November last year, according to data released by the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM).

Motorcycle sales last month declined 10.21 percent to 7,78,178 units, from 8,66,696 a year earlier. Total two-wheeler sales in November fell 5.85 percent to 12,43,251 units compared with 13,20,552 units in the year-ago month.

Sales of commercial vehicles were down 11.58 percent at 45,773 units in November, SIAM said.

Vehicle sales across categories registered a decline of 5.48 percent at 15,63,665 units, from 16,54,407 in November 2015, it added.
