By S Jha

New Delhi, July 11: Fate of stock market on Thursday was tied with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS). Sensex and Nifty rallied strongly with gains in TCS, only to reverse the trend quickly as the US inflation number was eyed by the street.

The early moments in the day on Thursday saw TCS strongly rallying. The rally in the IT counters was aligned to the gains of NASDAQ.

The tech-bourse of the US equity market has been on an upswing. The NASDAQ is extending gains amid rises in shares of tech stocks.

TCS was set for unveiling of the quarterly results in the off-market hour. After the market’s closing bells, TCS sprung a surprise to give numbers that was hailed by several analysts.

The IT behemoth along with Infosys sets the trend for the street on the earning seasons. Dollar revenue also grew by 7.5 per cent against 2.7 per cent of analysts.

With only an hour to go for the unveiling of the quarterly results of TCS, indices erased all the losses. Nifty recovered over 130 points from the day’s low. Bank Nifty also covered losses of over 400 points from the day’s low.

The fall in the frontline stocks was led by the HDF Bank and Mahindra and Mahindra. Both the stocks have been trending lower for the past few days.
