Key benchmark indices extended their winning streak to the fifth day to attain their highest closing level in more than eight weeks as world stocks rose, buoyed by hopes that the Greek parliament will vote in favor of additional austerity measures. The BSE Sensex jumped 201.41 points or 1.09%, up about 140 points from the day's low and off close to 20 points from the day's high. The market breadth was strong. Recent aggressive buying by foreign funds underpinned sentiment.

The Indian stock indices eked out modest gains on Tuesday, rising for a fourth consecutive trading session. The BSE Sensex closed within shouting distance of 18,500 and the NSE Nifty ended near 5,550.
Firm cues from the international equity markets coupled with encouraging FII inflows in the past few days enabled the benchmark indices to end in the positive terrain.
The Government's bold steps on fuel prices last week and optimism about Greece getting a fresh rescue package soon also played a role in the advance today.
Hope is some extraordinary spiritual grace that God gives us to control our fears, not to oust them. ~Vincent McNabb.
The fuel price hike has suddenly fueled hopes of more reforms from UPA II. A cabinet reshuffle is on the cards shortly while the PM has decided to speak more frequently to the media. But, problems remain - largely in the form of high inflation, spiraling interest rates and drop in investments.
The Indian market has rallied for the past four sessions – the longest winning streak in three months. Hopefully, the rally may just have enough steam to last a bit longer.
The market may extend four days gains on firm Asian stocks. The latest data showing that foreign institutional investors (FIIs) had stepped up buying of Indian stocks may also help sentiment. Trading of S&P CNX Nifty futures on the Singapore stock exchange indicates a gain of 39 points at the opening bell. Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) bought shares worth Rs 819.41 crore and domestic funds sold shares worth Rs 575.06 crore on Tuesday, 28 June 2011, as per provisional figures released by the stock exchanges.
