Stock Market Updates: Sensex Surges, Nifty Hits Fresh High; Tata Motors, SBI among Laggards

The Indian stock market ended Monday with gains, led by the benchmark Sensex surpassing the 79,000-mark. The BSE Sensex closed at 79,476.19, marking a 0.56% increase. The broader Nifty 50 rose by 131.35 points, or 0.55%, to settle at 24,141.95, a fresh all-time high. Among the Sensex shares, Tech Mahindra, UltraTech Cement, and Tata Consultancy Services were the gainers. On the other hand, NTPC, State Bank of India, and Larsen & Toubro were the laggards. In global markets, Asian and European shares saw gains, while US markets ended lower on Friday. The optimism came after the US inflation data, which showed a reduction in the core PCE inflation, raising hopes for a rate cut by the US Fed in September.

Tata Motors Limited reported its sales in the domestic and international markets for Q1 FY 2024-25, which stood at 229,891 vehicles compared to 226,245 units during Q1 FY 2023-24.

The Indian rupee ended weaker on Monday as broad-based interbank dollar demand pressured the currency, even as the greenback weakened. The rupee ended at 83.4375 against the U.S. dollar, lower than the close of 83.3825 in the previous session. Interbank dollar bids had pushed the rupee to an intra-day low of 83.4650 earlier in the session but declined in the dollar index helped it trim losses.
