Oil and gas stocks picked up in share market on October 11, 2018, following a fall in oil costs to a two-week low in spite of a huge auction in the Indian stock market in the midst of a defeat in worldwide stock exchanges.

Also, oil stocks got a lift on reports that the oil marketing organizations might not need to hold up under any extra weight of higher oil subsidies. “Our markets slumped from the word go, on back of such extremely weak global cues… Energy stocks especially oil markets companies bucked the trend on the hope that they will not have to bear excess subsidy burden,” said VK Sharma, the Head-Private Client Group and Capital Market Strategy at HDFC Securities.
