Sensex up by 381.94 pts @ 19676.06 & Nifty close down by 118.40 pts @ 5935.10. The
BSE Sensex rose about 2 percent on Thursday to its highest in about 1-1/2 months as
blue chips such as HDFC Bank staged a broad recovery from recent falls on hopes that
U.S. monetary stimulus would not end as early as feared. The Indian rupee snapped a
two-day rally to weaken slightly on Thursday as importers including oil firms bought
dollars, while the initially big impact from Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's
comments on U.S. stimulus faded later in the session.
