On Monday (October 21, 2013), the Se nsex closed at 20,893.89, up by 11.00 points, while the Nifty rose by 15.60 points to close at 6,204.95.

Global Indices:

Asian shares pulled backed from a five-month high and the dollar stabilized after recent heavy losses as markets waited for US jobs data that could shape expectations as to whether the Federal Reserve will start withdrawing stimulus this year.

US stocks ended little changed on Monday as lackluster earnings reports from McDonald’s and others fed concerns that equities were overpriced after the S&P index’s run to record highs last week.

Reassuring earnings updates from blue-chip companies Philips and SAP enabled a key European equity index to hit a fresh 5-year high on Monday.
