The 30-share BSE benchmark continued its winning run for the third consecutive session on Tuesday. It gained 221.26 points or 0.37 per cent to settle at 60,616.89 on Tuesday.
In three days, the benchmark has gained 1,015.05 points.
“Markets ended marginally higher in a volatile session, tracking mixed cues. Initially, weak global cues were weighing on the sentiments. However, resilience in the IT majors not only capped the downside but also helped the index to inch higher.
“As the day progressed, index majors from other sectors also contributed to the move,” said Religare Broking Vice-President (Research) Ajit Mishra.
In Tuesday’s trade, HCL Tech was the biggest gainer from the 30-share frontline companies pack, jumping 4.30 per cent, followed by HDFC, Tech Mahindra, TCS, Sun Pharma, RIL and SBI.
In the broader market, the mid-cap and small-cap indices gained up to 0.15 per cent.
