Stock market highlights: Equity markets gyrated between gains and losses on the day of the monthly F&O expiry for March derivatives' series as investors adjusted their positions. However, fag-end buying helped frontline indices settle near day's high level amid robust buying in metal, auto, and financial (especially PSU banks) stocks.

The S&P BSE Sensex ended at 57,960, up 346 points or 0.6 per cent, after trading between 57,524 and 58,122 during the day. The Nifty50, on the other hand, closed at 17,081, up 129 points or 0.76 per cent. It see-sawed over 150 points during the day.

The broader markets, meanwhile, outshone benchmarks with 1.67 per cent gains each.   

Adani Enterprises, Adani Ports, JSW Steel, Eicher Motors, HCL Tech, Bajaj Auto, Ultratech Cement, Tata Motors, and Hero MotorCorp were the large-cap winners, surging up to 9 per cent. Losses in Airtel, Reliance Industries, Asian Paints, ICICI Bank, and Cipal, however, weighed.

This volatility is expected to continue until the global banking system gets fully recovered from the turmoil, along with a confirmation of the Fed's decision to pause rate hikes.
