The broader indices ended largely in positive territory, with gain led by Smallcap and Midcap stocks. Oil & Gas and Metal stocks gained among the other sectoral indices while Pharma and Healthcare stocks shed.

“The declining oil prices and ease in US bond yields are the key positives for a broader recovery for the market. The European market was mixed ahead of the ECB minutes and the release of manufacturing index data,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services

Nair also said that, that range-bound momentum continued on main indexes as the market looked for new triggers for a decisive move beyond the 19800 level. However, broad markets’ undercurrent is strong and rapid buying has emerged in the mid- and small-cap counters as bargaining strategy arose on recent underperforming stocks.

Hero MotoCorp, Bajaj Auto, BPCL, IndusInd Bank and, Eicher Motors, were the top gainers on the NSE Nifty 50, while the laggers include Cipla, Ultra Tech Cement, SBI Life Insurance, LTI Mindtree, and Larsen & Tourbo.
