Key benchmark indices edged higher, with market sentiment boosted by data showing that foreign funds remained net buyers of Indian stocks on Thursday, 26 December 2013. Gains in Asian and European stocks also boosted sentiment on the domestic bourses as the barometer index, the S&P BSE Sensex, and the 50-unit CNX Nifty, both, hit their highest level in more than two weeks. The Sensex closed up 118.99 points or 0.56%, off close to 45 points from the day’s high and up about 75 points from the day’s low. The market breadth, indicating the overall health of the market, was positive.
