The market's rise has been a bit slow, according to analysts, due to reports of a destabilization plot that was later denied. Foreign investors, though, are betting on a run-up to an expected Christmas rally where the index is being touted to rise to the 7,000-point level.

Meanwhile, there have been bargain hunters as there are profit-takers in the market, resulting in volatile trading for shares in the market.
