On Friday, the Indian stock market benchmark indices ended higher, gaining nearly 2% for the week.

The Sensex gained 253.31 points, or 0.34%, to close at 73,917.03, while the Nifty 50 settled 62.25 points, or 0.28%, higher at 22,466.10.

The Indian stock market will remain closed on Monday, May 20, on account of the Lok Sabha election in Mumbai.

“The equity markets continued to remain volatile throughout the week, mainly influenced by factors arising from the US and Europe, essentially on speculations regarding the timing of the Fed rate cut. The current trend of swings on the index levels is likely to continue in the coming weeks too, though there is quite a bit of consternation from the high valuations obtained at this time," said Jaykrishna Gandhi, Head - Business Development, Institutional Equities, Emkay Global Financial Services.
