Sensex snaps 5-day losing streak; L&T gains

MUMBAI (Reuters) - The BSE Sensex snapped five days of falls to gain on Tuesday as Larsen & Toubro surged after its results, while an improvement in global risk sentiment and the RBI's intervention in currency markets helped provide some stability.


Larsen & Toubro rose 5.4 percent. Recently battered blue chips also recovered, with Infosys ending up 3.3 percent, while ICICI Bank added 2 percent.


The Sensex rose 0.69 percent to 16,328.25 points, while the 50-share Nifty added 0.71 percent to 4,942.80 points.
