second consecutive session on Tuesday, led by broad-based gains amid a rebound
in the global equities. Foreign fund inflows also aided the domestic
sentiments. On the global front, Asian markets settled higher on
Tuesday following the broadly positive cues from Wall Street, with traders
remaining cautiously optimistic as they believe the heavy selling in recent

on Wednesday.

from the highs.”
