Sensex ends above 20500; broader indices outperform


Equity benchmarks closed last session of the year 2010 on a positive note, led by support from financial, Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group, realty, telecom, auto, select metal and power companies’ shares. Reliance Industries and HUL also led the support. The Sensex gained for third consecutive day today and settled above 20,500 level.
Hemen Kapadia of feels 6185 is an important level on Nifty. “Monday is the time when the markets could just about peak for the time being, correct a bit and after that on the rebound when we take out 6185, then we are testing 6350. If we take out 6350 which seems like a possibility at this point in time I won’t be surprised if we would see a 8% to 10% upside in the next 3 to 4 months after that,” he said.
