BSE Sensex Posts Biggest Weekly Gains In Four Weeks for 17 July 2015

 Indian markets had their biggest weekly advance in a month, with sustained buying by foreign investors and gains in pharmaceutical and automobile stocks. The BSE small-cap and mid-cap indices continued to outperform blue-chips as investors took more stock-specific bets. "Global equities rallied for the week on the Greek bailout progress and the Iran nuclear deal,"  "The positive sentiment continued for Indian equities even as the monsoon lost pace in July. Going ahead, the markets would be driven by corporate earnings, monsoon progress and reform measures in the coming Parliament session." Mixed global trends, however, saw the benchmark indices end with only marginal gains on Friday. The BSE Sensex gained only 17.19 points or 0.06 per cent. However, the weekly gain was 2.9 per cent, to end at a three-month high of 28,463. The 50-share NSE Nifty added 1.8 points or 0.02 per cent to 8,609.85. The BSE mid-cap and small-cap indices gained 0.2 per cent and 0.4 per cent, respectively.
