The NIFTY made another bullish close last week, soaring 119 points by the time the closing bell rang on Friday. The announcement of another bond sale by the central bank lifted financial stocks, while optimism about easing geopolitical tensions improved overall sentiment. Friday's rally was across the board, with small and mid-caps witnessing strong buying interest as well. The year seems all set to close on a bullish note for the bellwether index, which has already witnessed close to 13 per cent growth in CT 2019, amidst slumping corporate growth and stretched valuations.
