The BSE Sensex closed at 4,086 (up 15 points) and the NSE Nifty closed at 1,299 (up 6 points). The rupee was trading at Rs 46.43 to a dollar.The buying on the bourses was a mix of both the old and the new economy. Gains in HLL (up 2.3%), ITC (up 1.2%), Infosys (up 3.4%) and Satyam (up 1.7%) contributed around 11 points to the NSE Nifty, On the other hand reverses suffered by oil companies Reliance (down 2%), Reliance Petro (down 0.9%), HPCL (down 2.8%), and others like Tisco (down 5.1%) and SBI (down 1.7%) together contributed to a decline of over 6 points from the Nifty.
