Closing Bell: Nifty holds 11,000, Sensex up 125 pts; auto, metal outperform

Ajit Mishra Vice President, Research, Religare Broking:

We expect the Indian markets to remain range bound in the near term. Barring the macro data (CPI, IIP) this week, there are no key domestic triggers in the near-term. We believe global factors such as US-China trade war development, Brexit; etc. will provide direction to the markets. Also, ECB meet scheduled for tomorrow and a likely rate cut by US Federal Reserve in its mid-September meeting will have a bearing on the markets going forward.
