Budget 2019: Sensex rallies over 500 pts; Nifty nears 11,000 mark

The 30-share Sensex was trading 506.21 points, or 1.40 per cent, higher at 36,762.90; and the 50-share Nifty inched near the 11,000 mark rallying 143.30 points, or 1.32 per cent, to 10,974.25.

Heavy short-covering on expiry of January series futures and options (F&O) contracts too buoyed the benchmarks, analysts said.
During the session, the BSE benchmark Sensex swung over 260 points both ways on alternate bouts of buying and selling by participants.
While the Sensex rose nearly 130 points to 36,450 with 28 components in the green, Nifty gained 34 pts to 10,924.
