After taking a breather in the previous trading session, the Indian stock market began the week with a bang, well supported by rising global equities and FII inflows. The NSE Nifty closed above the 5900 levels for the first time in almost three months. The BSE Sensex ended above 19,700 on the back of all-round buying across sectors and is inching closer to the 20,000 milestone.
Capital Goods, IT, Auto and Banking stocks were among the major gainers. The BSE Mid-Cap and the BSE Small-Cap indexes outperformed the benchmark indices as traders seek value in outside the main indices.

Investors cheered India's emphatic win over Sri Lanka to clinch 2011 Cricket World Cup title over the weekend, sending the key benchmark indices to 3-month highs. Higher auto and cement sales in March 2011, recent strong macroeconomic data and expectations of a normal monsoon this year, aided the rally. Revival of inflow from foreign institutional investors (FIIs) has also boosted sentiment. The BSE 30-share Sensex jumped 281.34 points or 1.45%, up close to 250 points from the day's low and off close to 30 points from the day's high. Today's rally on the domestic bourses was quite broad-based. The market breadth was strong.

The key Indian stock indices ended in the red on Friday, snapping an eight-day winning streak as traders took some profit ahead of the weekend. The BSE Sensex and the NSE Nifty cooled off after the Nifty hit a high of 5860 in the early trades. From there on, the key indices were stuck in a narrow trading range and were unable to find a specific direction throughout the day. In contrast, the broader market indices did really well after under-performing the Large-Cap peers in the past several sessions.
"Victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan." John Fitzgerald Kennedy quotes.
The Indian cricket team has attained World Cup glory again after over two decades. It was a splendid team effort indeed and a proud moment to cherish for years to come. The Indian stock market too has been in terrific form in the past two weeks, thanks largely to strong FII inflows. But there might be some cooling as Brent oil trades near $120 a barrel. Nymex is hovering around $110.
The market is likely to open on a firm note on positive global cues. Positive US jobs data boosted Asian markets. But, the rise in crude oil prices may cap gains in Indian stocks. Trading of S&P CNX Nifty futures on the Singapore stock exchange indicates a gain of 15 points at the opening bell.
