MUMBAI: The BSE Sensex surged 556 points and the Nifty gained 179 points in early morning trading after the U.S. Federal Reserve stunned markets and decided not to taper its asset-buying programme. The Fed said it would await evidence of stronger economic growth before adjusting the pace of its purchases, and in a press conference, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said market expectations cannot dictate policy actions. The NSE bank index surged 6.73 percent in trade on hopes that the RBI may ease some of emergency cash tightening steps it had initiated in mid-July. The BSE Sensex was up 2.7 percent while the the Nifty rose 3 percent at 0937 IST. - See more at: http://www.punjabnewsline.com/business/
