Equity benchmark indices settled higher for the third consecutive session on Tuesday, after gains in telecom, tech, and consumer durable stocks amid a positive sentiment in the global markets. However, surging crude oil prices and foreign capital outflows amid geopolitical tensions restricted the markets’ appreciation bias. 

The BSE Sensex jumped 89.83 points or 0.12 per cent to close at 73,738.45. The NSE Nifty gained 31.60 points or 0.14 per cent to settle at 22,368. Volatility index India VIX declined sharply by 20 per cent to 10.2 levels.

"The domestic market exhibited range-bound performance, tracking positive global cues with sustained outperformance of the broader market. While tensions between Iran and Israel were perceived to have limited escalation, the uptick in crude prices suggests investors’ reassessing the risks. With higher levels of the dollar index and US bond yields, FIIs are expected to continue with outflows, but inflows from DIIs are supporting the recovery," said Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services.
