Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], February 11 (ANI): Equity benchmark indices ended higher in volatile trading on Thursday with metal stocks gaining ground and PSU banks taking a beating.
The BSE S&P Sensex closed 222 points or 0.43 per cent higher at 51,532 while the Nifty 50 edged higher by 67 points or 0.44 per cent to 15,173.
Sectoral indices at the National Stock Exchange were mixed Nifty metal up by 1 per cent, FMCG by 0.8 per cent and IT by 0.6 per cent. But Nifty PSU bank dropped by 1.2 per cent and auto by 0.4 per cent.
