The stock market of India extended its pre-budget rally on the third straight day as the BSE Sensex gained 129 points after closing at 39,816 levels while the 50-stock Nifty added 44 points and closed at 11,910 levels. the index Bank Nifty lost 88 points and closed at 31,283 levels. Adani Green Energy, Adani Power, Ipca Laboratories, Adani Transmission and Manpasand Beverage stocks were the top five gaining shares in the intraday while Godrej Properties, Yes Bank, Quess Corp, Allahabad Bank and Corporation Bank shares were the top five losing stocks today.
Speaking on the market outlook Simi Bhaumik, a SEBI registered technical stock analyst told Zee Business Online, "The market is overall bullish and I am expecting it to touch 12,100 to 12,300 levels before the budget 2019 as Nifty has strong support base at 11,790 levels. At Bank Nifty, 31,100 seems strong support and we can expect some fresh buying in the banking shares post-budget 2019."
