Dear friends! It's great to have you at ETMarkets Evening Podcast.

It was the first day of the week and the market started off with a clean set of hands. Key stock indices Sensex and Nifty rallied for the second straight session, in line with gains in Asia, after US Fed officials predicted a steady economic growth and rate hike worries faded.

Nifty Realty was the leading gainer, jumping over 3 per cent. On the Nifty heatmap, 38 scrips went up and 12 declined.
