The 30-share barometer, which had plunged 431.05 points in the previous session, rose by 50.79 points, or 0.18 percent, to 26,826.48 with consumer durables, power, healthcare, realty, oil & gas and capital goods stocks leading the recovery.

 

Also, the National Stock Exchange index Nifty gained 17.00 points, or 0.21 percent, to 8,034.55.

 

Brokers said besides selective buying by investors, covering-up of short positions by speculators in view of Thursday's monthly expiry in the derivatives segment influenced the trading sentiment.

 

Among other Asian markets, Japan's Nikkei fell 0.30 percent, while Hong Kong's Hang Seng was trading 0.38 percent higher in morning trade.

 

US Dow Jones Industrial Average ended 0.68 percent down in Tuesday's trade.
