In line with the larger peers, the broader indices too gained traction with the Metal sector and Auto sector shining the most among all major sectoral indices on the BSE.  The market sentiments were optimistic as the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) favored extending incentives based on parameters like job creation and committed investments across the country. Also the market participants took note of Prime Minister Narendra Modi asserting that the global economic outlook is strongly dependent on the path chartered by large developing countries like India and Saudi Arabia.

The stocks related to the metal industry were in limelight on Tuesday as Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas & Steel Dharmendra Pradhan said that the demand of steel  in the country has witnessed a substantial  increase  and  is  expected  to increase further in the future as India embarks to become a $5 trillion economy. The Indian markets were also highly influenced by the US markets extending their gains and ending higher on Monday, with S&P 500 hitting a record high, amid continued optimism about US-China trade talks as well as news that the European Union (EU) has granted the UK's request for a Brexit deadline extension.
