Gains in shares of select bank and financial stocks, including HDFC twins, ICICI Bank and State Bank of India, helped key equity indices Sensex and Nifty log decent gains on September 4, in the light of improved global sentiment and rupee's fresh rise against the US dollar.

After a subdued start, the market slipped in the red and traded with negative bias in the first half. However, it managed to pull back from the lows and ended the session higher.

Sensex closed 162 points, or 0.44 percent, higher at 36,724.74, with 18 stocks in the green. The Nifty index logged a gain of 47 points or 0.43 percent to settle at 10,844.65, with 30 stocks ending in the positive.


Midcaps and smallcaps underperformed Sensex as their sectoral indices on BSE climbed up to 0.29 percent.

Advance decline ratio was at neutral level near to 1:1.

Metals and bank stocks showed signs of short covering, which, as per analysts, is positive for the market as these stocks have very high beta and can change the momentum of the market.

"The rise in metals and banks that could be big positive for the market as it implies that investors are ready to shift from defensive sector to high-risk sectors or investors are ready to handle risk in the market," said Shrikant Chouhan, Senior Vice President - Equity Technical Research at Kotak Securities.

Nifty witnessed a technical bounce back to reclaim 10,800 levels and formed a bullish candle on the daily candlestick charts after a massive fall seen in the previous session.

The index is still trading below crucial short term moving averages and despite the bounce, the trend is still negative, suggest experts. Traders are advised to trade with strict stop losses as long as the index trades above 10,756-10637 levels.
