INDIAN BENCHMARKS closed with volatile trading week on a flat note led by unsupportive domestic cues and global turmoil. Markets slumped in the first three trading sessions of the week as prospects of higher interest rates in the United States and a sharp fall in global crude oil prices weighed on sentiment.
The worries and concerns have not really vanished but sentiment got a boost late in the week from the Fed which seems upbeat of the US economy.
The INDIAN BENCHMARKS SENSEX ended 0.1 percent higher at 27371 and the 50-share NIFTY ended 0.1 percent up at 8225.
