INDIAN BENCHMARKS: EUROPEAN MARKETS LIFT SENSEX BY 84 POINTS, NIFTY ABOVE 7850
After Monday's raging Bull Run, Tuesday would have ended in utter disappointment but a late surge gave the benchmark Sensex an 83-point lift.
Domestic equity indices opened in the red and traded flat with a negative bias for most of the day before turning positive at around 1 pm on strong cues from a strong opening in the European markets. A fresh bounce in crude oil prices also helped investor sentiment.
The Sensex ended at 25,772.53, up 83.67 points or 0.33 per cent, while NSE's Nifty50 closed at 7,887.80, up 21.75 points or 0.28 per cent.
Dr Reddy's Labs (up 3.04 per cent), Axis Bank (up 2.22 per cent), HUL (up 1.93 per cent), L&T (up 1.87 per cent) and GAIL (up 1.26 per cent) were the top Sensex gainers while Tata Motors (down 3.58 per cent), NTPC (down 1.75 per cent), ONGC (down 1.65 per cent), Adani Ports (down 0.99 per cent) and Asian Paints -0.83 % (down 0.83 per cent) were among the biggest losers.
