“Positive earnings reports provided a much-needed boost to the domestic market, aiding its recovery from the impact of weak global cues. The pharma sector sustained its positive momentum, with the trend being extended by the IT and banking stocks. However, increasing US bond yields continued to distract the global market, impeding the inflow of foreign funds into the domestic market," said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.

In Asia, Japan’s Nikkei 225 ended 0.1% higher, while Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index gained 0.6% at the close and Shanghai Composite was up 0.2%.

On the domestic front, better corporate earnings for the quarter ended June 2023 and strong macroeconomic data supported investor sentiment.

Among sectors, strong gains were seen in Nifty IT, Nifty Private Bank, Nifty Pharma, Nifty Financial Services and Nifty Metal indices, while Nifty Auto, Nifty PSU Bank and Nifty Realty ended in the red.
