The Industrials Index was 2.64 points or 1.47% up to 181.98 taking its gains this year alone to 19.41 % whilst no movements were recorded in the resources sector resulting in the Minings Index closing unchanged at yesterday's level.

The upsurge in retail counters saw the Truworths Retail Index on the Zfn board rising 5.66% to 241.00 while Innscor's record jump helped the Conglomerates Index to rise 8.23% to 75.04.

SeedCo was offered bid and offered lower at 60c and 75c respectively after issuing a trading update with a profit warning saying it is anticipated that group year-end forecast profits will be lower than those reported last year.
