The benchmark indices ended higher for the second consecutive day on Tuesday aided by a rise in information technology (IT) and public sector banking stocks.

The S&P BSE Sensex ended at 33,513, up 159 points (0.45 per cent), while the broader Nifty50 index settled at 10,686, up 57 points (0.54 per cent).

Among sectoral indices, the Nifty IT index settled 1.43 per cent higher led by a rise in the shares of Infosys and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), while the Nifty PSU Bank rose 1.01 per cent led by Bank of India and State Bank of India (SBI).

In key stocks, YES Bank fell 3.03 per cent to Rs 182.20 on the National Stock Exchange (NSE) after international credit ratings agency Moody's downgraded the private bank's ratings and changed their outlook to negative. The stock traded in the red during the day as a news report suggested that the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Monday began examining the private bank's exposure to various Non-Banking Finance Companies (NBFCs).

In the broader market, S&P BSE Midcap index settled 0.13 per cent higher at 14,910, while S&P BSE SmallCap rose 0.43 per cent at 14,391.

On Tuesday, the rupee moved in a narrow range of 70.72-71.02 per dollar. It had settled at 70.86 against the greenback on Monday.

Global Markets

Asian share markets fought to keep a global rebound alive on Tuesday after US President Donald Trump seemed to quash hopes of a trade truce with China, clouding what had been a bright start to the week.

Moves were generally muted but Japan's Nikkei managed to add 0.8 per cent and Chinese blue-chips rose 0.4 per cent. MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan dithered either side of flat and was last up 0.2 per cent.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Trump said he expects to move ahead with raising tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese imports to 25 per cent from 10 per cent currently. The comments ran counter to recent speculation about a possible deal when Trump meets with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires later this week.

Oil Prices

Oil prices slipped on Tuesday, weighed down by record Saudi Arabian production even as OPEC's top producer pushes for supply cuts ahead of the group's meeting in Austria next week.

International Brent crude oil futures briefly dipped below $60 per barrel before rising back to $60.16, still down 32 cents, or 0.5 per cent, from their last close. US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were at $51.18 per barrel, down 45 cents, or 0.9 per cent.
