5 reasons why Sensex surged over 550 points today


The BSE Sensex closed at one and a half months high of 26,785.55 with a surge of 564.60 points as expectations for a US rate hike faded after a weak US jobs data.

 

Below are the reasons why Sensex rallied over 550 points intraday.
1. European shares rose sharply on Monday, with the French market outperforming after stronger-than-expected economic data, while Glencore  and ArcelorMittal pushed up mining stocks and Volkswagen continued its slide.
2. Indian rupee rose for the fifth day in a row on Monday. It was up by 21 paise against the US dollar at 65.30 in morning deals on persistent selling of the greenback by banks and exporters amid weakness in the American currency overseas and higher domestic equity market.
3. All the Asian markets closed in green on the back of expectation that Chinese government is likely to announce a stimulus plan to boost the growth. China’s Shanghai Composite went up by 0.48 per cent while Hang Seng(Hong Kong) rose by 1.84%. The Chinese markets were under selling pressure in the last few sessions especially after the factory data released last week showed manufacturing in China was down to the lowest level in last six and half years.
4. US jobs data that was released on Friday fuelled speculation that the Federal Reserve will not raise key interest rates any time soon, giving a boost to trading sentiments globally.
5. Inflows from foreign investors and across-the-board buying by the investors also helped the market sentiments. The Foreign Portfolio Investors(FPIs) were net buyers on Thursday as they bought shares worth $7.3 million, stock exchange data showed. FPIs have offloaded their holdings heavily from the Indian equity markets during the last two months over the global concerns about China. FPIs sold cash equities worth nearly $3.5 billion since August, Bloomberg data showed.
