Benchmark equity indices recovered losses and settled in green for the second consecutive day on Wednesday after buying in the energy, metal, and utility sectors amid positive domestic inflation data.

The BSE Sensex gained 267.64 points or 0.37 per cent to close at 71,822.83 points. The NSE Nifty 50 also gained 96.80 points or 0.45 per cent to settle at 21,840.05 points. All sectors ended in the green except for IT and Pharma.

“On the global front, US inflation came at 0.3 per cent higher than expected, dashing the hopes of rate cuts in the near term. This impacted the sentiments and the market saw a gap-down opening. However, strong buying emerged at lower levels lifting market sentiments. The broader market outperformed with Nifty Mid/small gaining 1.0/1.6 per cent respectively. With result season almost over, the focus will shift to global cues and economic data points. Overall we expect the market to see a gradual up move on back of strong fundamentals,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head of Retail Research at Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.
