The BSE benchmark Sensex rallied 337 points on Friday, led by gains in energy, banking and IT stocks as global investor sentiment improved on hopes of a trade truce between the US and China.

Similarly, the broader NSE Nifty settled 98.30 points, or 0.91 per cent, higher at 10,946.20.

During the day, the index touched a peak of 10,957.05 and a low of 10,867.45.

Top gainers in the Sensex pack included Tech Mahindra, Maruti, NTPC, Axis Bank, Tata Steel, Bajaj Auto, Tata Motors, Bajaj Finance, M&M and Kotak Bank, rising up to 3.77 per cent.

On the other hand, Yes Bank, Sun Pharma, TCS, HCL Tech, HUL and ITC were among the losers, shedding up to 2.42 per cent.

According to experts, regular news flow from the RBI and the finance ministry have helped to stabilise equity markets lately.
