Investor wealth zooms ₹3.41 lakh crore as markets witness massive buying
Investor wealth grew by ₹3.41 lakh crore on Tuesday as markets made a dashing comeback after two days of losses.
The 30-share BSE Sensex soared 834.02 points or 1.72 per cent to close at 49,398.29.
Following the upbeat sentiment, the market capitalisation of BSE-listed companies jumped ₹3,41,846.01 crore to ₹1,96,19,149.34 crore.
"Bulls took control after two days of the massive selloff, tracking positive cues from Asian markets and in expectation of a bigger US stimulus to keep the liquidity alive," Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.
Bajaj Finserv was the top gainer in the Sensex pack, gaining 6.80 per cent, followed by Bajaj Finance, HDFC, ICICI Bank and L&T.
HDFC and Reliance Industries were the most significant contributors to the benchmark index gain.
All BSE sectoral indices closed with gains, with realty, metal, power, capital goods, industrials and finance indices gaining up to 4.04 per cent.
In the broader market, the BSE midcap and smallcap indices jumped up to 2.31 per cent.
