SENSEX, NIFTY CLOSE LOWER ON F&O EXPIRY DAY

The Sensex and Nifty ended lower for a second straight session on Thursday due to derivatives expiry and on lingering concerns over the target. The Sensex dropped 63 points or 0.19 percent to 33,848, while nifty fell 12.85 points or 0.12 percent to 10,477.90 Vedanta Ltd rose as much as 2.7 percent and was on track for a third straight session of gains. Hindalco Industries Ltd, which produces aluminum and copper, surged as much as 4.9 percent to hit a record high. Pharma stocks were little changed after rising over the last four sessions, with Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd dropping more than 1 percent.
GLOBAL MARKET:
Asian shares rose to a one-month high on Thursday and were on track for their best annual performance since 2009, while commodity-driven currencies were buoyed by a rally in copper, which hit a four-year peak. MSCI's broadest index of Asia–Pacific shares outside Japan was up 0.1 percent at 563.86 points, a level last visited in late November. It has rocketed 32 percent in the year so far. MSCI world equity index,  which tracks shares in 47 countries, also held near record highs. It has surged 21.5 percent this year. Trade was light across the board with many market participants on holiday.
