Shaking off the Budget blues and buoyed by strong PMI data, equity markets bounced back on February 3 after falling for three consecutive days.

The manufacturing PMI data for India hit a near eight-year high in January, driven by a sharp rise in new business orders amid a rebound in demand conditions that led to a rise in production and hiring activity.

Sensex closed 137 points, or 0.34 percent, higher at 39,872.31 and Nifty settled 46 points, or 0.39 percent, higher at 11,707.90.

"Technically, Nifty formed a positive candle on the daily chart. Going forward, if it sustains above 11,750, then we may see a bounce towards 11,830–11,900 levels. However, the overall bullish sentiments got dampened and thus traders should not remain aggressively on the long side. On the downside, a break below its immediate support of 11,600 may lead to a further correction towards 11,500 and then 11,333 levels," said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services.
