In a highly volatile trade, equity benchmarks Sensex and Nifty rebounded sharply on Tuesday after four days of heavy declines, powered by buying in IT and realty counters.

The 30-share BSE Sensex opened on a weak note and tumbled 581.93 points or 1.10 per cent to 52,260.82 during the day amid firming oil prices and relentless selling by foreign institutional investors.

Facing huge bouts of volatility, the benchmark touched a high of 53,484.26 and a low of 52,260.82 during the trade.

 

It finally settled at 53,424.09, higher by 581.34 points or 1.10 per cent.

Similarly, the broader NSE Nifty declined 115.75 points or 0.72 per cent to 15,747.40 in opening trade, before finishing at 16,013.45, up 150.30 points or 0.95 per cent.

On Monday, the Sensex had ended at 52,842.75, down 1,491.06 points or 2.74 per cent, while the Nifty tanked 382.20 points or 2.35 per cent to finish at 15,863.15.

From the 30-share pack, Sun Pharma, TCS, Tech Mahindra, NTPC, Wipro, UltraTech Cement, Dr Reddy’s Laboratories and Infosys were the major gainers, jumping up to 3.99 per cent.

In contrast, Tata Steel, Nestle, Titan Company, PowerGrid, Reliance Industries Limited and State Bank of India were among the laggards.

In the broader market, the BSE midcap index gained 1.46 per cent and the smallcap gauge jumped 1.33 per cent.

“Domestic indices reversed its trend and traded with gains led by export-oriented sectors like Pharma and IT which witnessed buying interest as the rupee fell to its record lows.

“Favourable exit poll results of state election and low-level buying seen in mid and small caps also helped in adding optimism in the domestic market.

“Major western markets were also trading in the green while other Asian peers continued to trade in negative territory on fear of the impact of global inflationary pressure…,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.

Bourses in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo settled lower.

Stock exchanges in the US closed in the negative territory, dropping sharply on Monday.

Meanwhile, international oil benchmark Brent crude jumped 2.87 per cent to $126.6 a barrel.

“US equities tumbled as investors continued to sell off stocks and stockpile safe-haven assets as concerns over the economic consequences of Russia’s war in Ukraine intensified.

“The Dow Jones fell 2.4 per cent, while the S&P 500 lost 2.95 per cent.

“The tech-heavy Nasdaq slumped 3.6 per cent,” according to Mitul Shah, Head of Research at Reliance Securities.

Foreign institutional investors continued their selling spree in Indian markets as they offloaded shares worth Rs 7,482.08 crore on a net basis on Monday, according to exchange data.
