India’s key indices, Sensex and Nifty along with the bonds and currency markets are closed on Tuesday for a public holiday on accounts of Mahashivratri. Continuing its see-saw trade, the stock markets made a sharp recovery on Monday in line with the global markets and strong corporate results. The BSE Sensex rose 294.71 points, or 0.87% to close at 34300.47, while the broader Nifty jumped 84.80 points, or 0.81%, to end the session at 10539.75. The Sensex had lost 407.40 points, or 1.18%, to settle at a one-month low of 34005.76 on Friday due to weak global stocks. Australian stocks rose 0.5 per cent and South Korea's KOSPI climbed 1 per cent.
