Stock Market LIVE Updates: Indian equity benchmarks Sensex and Nifty50 ended a choppy session higher on Tuesday, amid gains in financial and IT shares, halting a four-day losing streak. However, weakness in metal and select oil & gas stocks played spoilsport. Investors globally remained on the back foot tracking newsflow on the Russia-Ukraine war. Broader markets managed to stay above the flatline throughout the day, with the Nifty Midcap 100 and Nifty Smallcap indices finishing with gains of 1.2 percent and 1.5 percent respectively.

HDFC Bank remains one of our top picks in banking space: Angel One's Jyoti Roy 

Jyoti Roy, DVP- Equity Strategist at Angel One, tells CNBCTV18.com HDFC Bank remains one of their top picks in the banking space given its reasonable valuation, best-in-class asset quality and an expected rebound in growth from FY23. "Recent correction in HDFC Bank has largely been due to overall negative sentiments in the market due to the Russia-Ukraine war, which has led to a global risk-off environment, and not due to any deterioration in the fundamentals of the company," he said.

Tech stocks should continue to outperform: Rohit Srivastava

Rohit Srivastava, Founder and Strategist at Indiacharts.com, is positive on the tech space, especially the kind of services that India provides. "Tech has essentially become a defensive sector because it is something we can't do given the online world that we live in," he says.

"Even in the pandemic and now, I think it's pretty much ingrained. So if we simply look at the behaviour of tech stocks. They had run up a lot ahead of the January results. I think a lot of profit booking took place. But as we go to a slightly higher timeframe, the tech index or tech stocks like Infosys and Tech Mahindra have not really broken their 200-day averages," says Srivastava, who likes IT more than banking.
