Mumbai: The BSE benchmark Sensex jumped 181 points on Friday while the NSE Nifty reclaimed the 10,700-mark, driven by robust buying in banking, metal and pharma stocks amid positive global cues and a strengthening rupee.

After swinging over 350 points intra-day, the 30-share Sensex finally settled 181.39 points, or 0.51 per cent, higher at 35,695.10.

Similarly, the broader NSE Nifty ended 55.10 points, or 0.52 per cent, up at 10,727.35.
