The S&P BSE Mid-Cap index was up 0.51%. The S&P BSE Small-Cap index was up 0.25%. Both these indices outperformed the Sensex.

The market breadth, indicating the overall health of the market, was positive. On the BSE, 1183 shares rose and 1159 shares fell. A total of 156 shares were unchanged.

Overseas, Asian stocks were trading lower on lingering worries over US-China trade relations. On the data front, China's consumer inflation remained at the second-highest level so far this year, buoyed by an acceleration in non-food prices, official data showed Friday. The consumer price index rose 2.5% in October from a year earlier, unchanged from the growth in September, the National Bureau of Statistics said.

US stocks closed mostly lower yesterday, 8 November 2018 as the Federal Reserve kept interest rates unchanged in an unanimous decision and signaled that it would continue to tighten monetary policy at a gradual pace. As expected, the Fed kept its benchmark target for rates unchanged in a 2% to 2.25% range.
