Mumbai, Sep 7 (IANS) The key Indian equity indices traded on a positive note on Friday afternoon amid a largely volatile trade, supported by a slight recovery in the rupee against the dollar.
The rupee traded around 71.88 per dollar (1.09 p.m.), against the previous close of 71.99 per greenback.
However, weak global markets on the back of the persistent US-China trade war concerns capped gains on the domestic indices.
Among the sectoral indices, healthy buying activity was witnessed in auto, metal and healthcare stocks.
At 1.09 p.m., the wider Nifty50 on the National Stock Exchange traded 11,559.10 points, higher by 22.20 points or 0.19 per cent from the previous close.
The S&P BSE Sensex which had opened 38,314.55 points, traded at 38,338.33 points, higher by 95.52 points or 0.25 per cent from the previous close of 38,242.81 points.
