With the stock market benchmark Sensex on Monday surging over 450 points to settle at nearly two-week high, investors became richer by over Rs 1 lakh crore (Rs 1 trillion).

The 30-share Sensex ended the day at nearly two-week high of 20,850.74, up 451.32 points or 2.21 per cent amid hopes of US Fed sticking to its stimulus programme and optimism over Chinese reforms.

This was the biggest single-day gain for Sensex since October 18 when it rose by 467.38 points.

The broader NSE's Nifty settled the day with a gain of 132.85 points at 6,189.

Monday’s rally was fuelled by easing fears on US Fed's quantitative easing after Fed chief nominee Janet Yellen bolstered expectations of keeping the flow of easy money intact.

Following the robust sentiment in the stock market, the total investor wealth soared by Rs 1,05,802 crore (Rs 1,058.02 billion) to Rs 67,94,300 crore (Rs 67,943 billion).
