BSE LargeCap finished 0.26 percent, BSE MidCap and BSE SmallCap finished 0.40 percent and 0.35 percent, respectively.

“The markets managed to finish marginally higher in a volatile trading session, continuing the prevailing consolidation phase. After the initial rally, the benchmark gradually moved lower as the session progressed. Meanwhile, a mixed trend on the sector front kept participants pressured in which metal and energy made decent gains,” said Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking Ltd.

Asian markets rose Friday after a rally on Wall Street ahead of a speech from Federal Reserve boss Jerome Powell that is expected to repeat its plan to raise interest rates to fight inflation.

World stocks were narrowly mixed on Friday as traders and investors waited for a speech from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell for clues on the gradient of the Federal Reserve’s rate hike path.

Markets will respond in early trading Monday to the US Fed chairman’s speech at the Jackson Hole symposium.

“Indications are currently mixed and a decisive break of the 17,300-17,800 range in Nifty would trigger the next directional move. Participants should continue to focus on risk management and be extra cautious in stock selection,” added Mishra.
