The market continued its run-up in morning, with the Sensex firmly holding psychological 29,000 level, aided largely by Reliance Industries, banks and auto stocks.

“If the BJP were to win or show signs of making it past the poll day after tomorrow, I think that could be an event which takes the market beyond 9,000 or even 9,100,” Udayan Mukherjee, the CNBC-TV18 Consulting Editor and veteran market commentator said.
“On the other hand if that event does not deliver for the market, after this phase of consolidation, the market could easily breakdown in the near term and dart towards 8,600-8,500 kind of levels,” he added. The market breadth remained strong as about two shares advanced for every share declining on the BSE.
Reliance Industries shares touched fresh nine-year high of 1,307.05, up 3.86 percent intraday as investors remained bullish on its telecom as well as energy prospects, especially after recently the company indicated that revenue contribution from the sector will start from April 1, 2017.
