“The Indian rally strengthened as crude prices corrected, halving FII sales from last week. However, this rally may run out of steam as the commodity price correction and monetary policy tightening are negative for the global economy, limiting earnings growth and valuation expansion,” said Vinod Nair, Head of of research at Geojit Financial Services.

On Friday, Larsen & Toubro emerged as the biggest gainer in the Sensex pack, jumping 4.72%, followed by PowerGrid, NTPC, ICICI Bank, Axis Bank, Dr Reddy’s, Bharti Airtel and Nestle India.
