(Bloomberg) — India’s benchmark stock gauge rose as investors joined a rally that sent stocks higher in most regional markets, buoyed by the U.S. suspension of additional tariffs on China.
The S&P Index advanced 0.7% to 41,203.67 as of 9:54 a.m. in Mumbai, set for another record-high close. The NSE Nifty 50 Index climbed 0.6%. Stocks edged higher from Tokyo to Shanghai after the S&P 500 Index closed at an all-time high.
India’s equity market has benefited from foreign investors pumping $13.3 billion into the nation’s stocks this year. This exceeds the highest annual inflows since 2014 and has driven most of the Sensex’s 14% gain in 2019.
“The market will remain in a good mood because of the global environment, but there will be pockets of profit-booking because there are no further triggers in the next two weeks,” said Umesh Mehta, head of research at Samco Securities Ltd. in Mumbai.
