After a sharp sell-off in the market on August 29, Indian benchmark indices took a sudden U-turn and bounced back strongly today.

Sensex surged 2.7% to 59,537 points and Nifty50 went up 2.5% to 17,759 in Tuesday’s trade. All the stocks on Nifty50 were trading on a higher note, recovering most of the losses of the last trading session.

Bajaj twin stocks jumped 5% each becoming the top performers on Nifty50 followed by IndusInd Bank and Tech Mahindra.

Analysts believe strong FII buying is one of the major reasons for the strong rally. In August, FIIs bought ₹56,521 crore worth of assets including equity debt and hybrid in Indian markets as against consistent selling in first six months of the year.

“The Indian equity market witnessed a surprise and powerful rally to welcome Lord Ganesha. Our markets are showing resilience despite volatile global cues, and a surge in crude oil prices but such kind of rally bewildered everyone. This powerful rally can be attributed to delivery-based buying by the FIIs and short covering in the Futures & Options market,” said Santosh Meena, head of research at Swastika Investmart.

The Rupee too gained 51 paise in today’s trade to close at 79.45 paise per dollar. It hit a new low going below 80.11 yesterday.

“Rupee also witnessed a sharp appreciation against the USD despite higher crude oil prices which is a clear indication of FIIs' interest in the Indian equity market,” added Meena.
