              Investors went looking for bargain in banking, oil and gas and auto stocks.

              India and China on Tuesday agreed to move forward in their ties, with Chinese President Xi Jinping telling Prime Minister Narendra Modi that he wants to put the relationship on the “right track”.

              Meanwhile, August services sector activity contracted for the second consecutive month, but at a slower pace, a monthly survey has found. The Nikkei India Services PMI Business Activity Index improved slightly to 47.5 in August, from 45.9 in July.

              The 30-share Sensex jumped at the open and hit the day’s high of 31,863.47. But due to weak Asian markets, the barometer ended at 31,809.55, still up 107.30 points, or 0.34%, from its previous close.

              The Sensex had lost 190 points in the previous session, in line with a general weakness across the globe set off by North Korea’s nuclear test on Sunday.

              The 50-share NSE Nifty also moved up by 39.35 points, or 0.40%, to end at 9,952.20, after moving between 9,963.10 and 9,901.05.

              “Market started with a subdu ed bias, but la ter recovered with a sign of improving bilateral relationship between India and China. Additionally, improving manufacturing and service data (August) and tax collection will address concerns on valuation,“ said Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services. Days after the prolonged stand-off in the Dokalam area of the Sikkim sector was defused, the two leaders held an hourlong meeting which Modi described as “fruitful“.

              Buying activity picked up momentum in the later part of the session, in tandem with strong opening of European shares.

              The overall recovery received some support from consumer durables, up 2.32%, along with realty, oil and gas, metal and banking stocks which recouped their losses to an extent.

              Coal India remained in the lead, with a gain of 2.96%, with Adani Ports adding 1.60%, Bajaj Auto 1.58% and RIL 1.34%. Bharti Airtel trailed with most losses, down 2.25%.
