After days of tepid returns, benchmark indices Sensex and Nifty bounced back on Thursday after a good day for the bulls. Sensex surged by over 490 points while Nifty gained over 140 points during the last trading session.

Analysts attributed the bounce back to the onset of earnings season. Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services, said, "Market bounced back after the last two negative trading days led by strong monthly business updates of leading banks, emphasizing robust credit growth. The Realty sector was the highest gainer in anticipation of robust demand in the residential category, which was supported by healthy housing loans disbursement data announced by banks."

More firms are expected to declare their Q3 results soon in this month which is expected to drive the markets in the near term.
