Investors turn buoyant as Sensex gains 350 points; markets shake off bearish mood

The broader NSE Nifty also soared 122.60 points, or 1.22 per cent, today to close at 10,166.70 after shuttling between 10,182.65 and 10,061.90.

Sensex zoomed 179 Points or 0.55% to 32,776.34 while the wider Nifty was up by over 55 points or 0.55% to 10,099.35.

The gauge had tanked 891.50 points in the previous four sessions as upbeat second quarter GDP numbers failed to dispel concerns over a widening fiscal deficit. Participants sensed value-buying opportunities after equities' recent lacklustre run, making stock valuations attractive, brokers said.

Indian shares rose sharply on Thursday as firm global cues and a steep fall in oil prices overnight spurred investors to go bargain hunting after last week's heavy losses.

"Technically, while the Nifty has bounced back smartly, the underlying trend remained down". The benchmark BSE Sensex fell further by 100 points in early trade today due to selling in interest-sensitive stocks ahead of RBI's policy announcment later in the day.

All the BSE sectoral indices closed in the green, led by telecom, consumer durables, power, capital goods, auto, oil & gas, and realty.

Major gainers in the 30-share index were NTPC (2.20%), Maruti Suzuki India (2.16%), Tata Steel (2.08%), Bajaj Auto (1.95%), and Larsen & Toubro (1.66%).
