Benchmark BSE Sensex rebounded by 344 points while Nifty closed above the 16,000 level in choppy trade on July 15, 2022, snapping the four-day falling streak on renewed buying interest from foreign funds and firm global trends.

The 30-share BSE barometer climbed 344.63 points or 0.65% to settle at 53,760.78. During the day, it jumped 395.22 points or 0.73% to 53,811.37.

The broader NSE Nifty advanced 110.55 points or 0.69% to 16,049.20.

Among Sensex constituents, Hindustan Unilever, Titan, Maruti, Larsen & Toubro, HDFC, Mahindra & Mahindra, Nestle and Bharti Airtel were the major gainers.

Tata Steel, Power Grid, HCL Technologies, Wipro, Dr Reddy's and Axis Bank were the laggards.

In Asia, markets in Seoul and Tokyo ended in the green, while Shanghai and Hong Kong settled significantly lower.

Markets in Europe were trading in the green during mid-session deals. The U.S. markets had ended on a mixed note on Thursday.

"Volatility has re-emerged and investors have turned their focus on upcoming Fed policy in the backdrop of heightened US inflation. Fall in crude prices and reduction in FII selling added optimism to the domestic market while gloomy IT results, depreciating rupee and fear of global recession are restricting sizeable up move," said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.

Meanwhile, international oil benchmark Brent crude rose by 0.60% to $99.72 per barrel.

Foreign institutional investors turned net buyers in the capital market on Thursday, buying shares worth ₹309.06 crore, as per exchange data.
