Equity indices staged a stellar comeback on Tuesday after suffering their worst losses in a year in the previous session as bargain hunters piled into energy, finance and IT stocks amid signs of easing Russia-Ukraine tensions.


European markets clambered up following reports that some Russian troops near Ukraine were returning to their bases, which could de-escalate tensions between Moscow and the West.


A strengthening rupee further bolstered sentiment, traders said.


Recouping the previous day’s losses, the 30-share BSE Sensex surged 1,736.21 points or 3.08 per cent to end at 58,142.05. This was its biggest one-day jump since February 1, 2021.

“A ray of hope that tension between Russian and Ukraine is de-escalating, prompting a smart recovery in global equities. The domestic market followed the trend as oil prices edged lower.


“India’s CPI inflation for January rose to 6.01 per cent, breaching RBI’s tolerance level due to high food inflation and low base effect, this will be a point of concern for domestic market in the near-term,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.


The retail inflation rate breached the 6 per cent upper tolerance limit of the RBI for the first time in seven months in January, while the wholesale price index stayed in double-digits for the 10th month in a row, as per official data released after market hours on Monday.


Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking Ltd, said, “Markets have been witnessing a roller-coaster ride and we expect the same to continue in near future. In absence of any major domestic event, updates related to Russia-Ukraine tension and its impact on global markets will be on the radar.”
