Nifty PSU Bank index rose 3% and metal index added 1%. Coal India, Bajaj Finance, SBI, Axis Bank and UltraTech Cement were among major gainers on the Nifty.
Index price feed for NSE indices across brokers has frozen due to an unknown reason. Retail traders who frequent the price feed took to Twitter register the technical error. “There is an issue with live ticks for NSE indices (Nifty 50, Nifty Bank and others) across brokers. We are in touch with NSE to have this fixed,” Brokerage firm Zerodha said in a tweet.
An NSE spokesman said there was “no problem” from the exchange’s end regarding options prices. “There are some problems with Bank Nifty options. Premiums are not updating. We indicated this to the exchange,” said a trader with a domestic brokerage.
The NSE bank index rose by as much as 4.3% to a lifetime high of 19,410.40 after the central bank cut interest rates on Thursday by 25 basis points to 7.75% in a surprise move.
The Nifty 50 index has been stuck at 14,820, up 113 points from the previous day’s close and Nifty Bank remained at 35,626.60, up 1.45 per cent since 10:15 am. However, the prices of Nifty and Nifty Bank Futures are updating normally. The live price quotes of all the 11 sector gauges compiled by the NSE are also not updating due to the technical glitch at the National Stock Exchange. The Indian equity benchmarks edged higher on Wednesday, led by gains in HDFC Bank, Reliance Industries, Bajaj Finance, Axis Bank, Larsen & Toubro, ICICI Bank and State Bank of India.
