Despite seeing a choppy ride amid a few rounds of selling in some key stocks, the market ended with modest gains today.

A firm trend in Asian and European markets, and data showing a decline in trade deficit aided sentiment to an extent.

The Nifty closed at 6062.90, up 9.45 points or 0.16%.

IT majors traded firm almost right through the session.

Select automobile, metal and bank stocks surged higher.

Capital goods, FMCG and pharma stocks ended on a mixed note.

Oil and realty stocks traded weak.

Midcap and smallcap segments saw stock specific activity.

The market breadth was slightly weak.
