Sensex surges 250 pts; Tata Motors, Hindalco, HUL up

DATE: 28/09/2012

MUMBAI: The Indian equities were witnessing broad based buying with benchmarks hitting 16-month high on the back of dollar inflow following QE3 and as the UPA government began reforms process to stabilise the Indian economy.

"For those looking for the macro to improve before buying equities, it may just get too late given the market's way of looking forward and its ability to fix the macro. Arguably, markets are far from efficient and, just as they had slipped into gloom and doom less than 9 months ago, they are capable of rising into euphoria.

In the meantime, we remain buyers of equities with a cyclical bias. This could all go wrong with one badly received political move, complacency in Europe, or a supply shock in oil," said Ridham Desai of Morgan Stanley.
