MARKET QUOTE | Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services on Tuesday's market performance

"Following a strong opening backed by positive gains in global markets, domestic indices were torn between gains and losses in today’s volatile trade. Broad-based buying led by auto, realty, and metal stocks aided the bourses to bell the day in positive territory. However, continuous selling by the FIIs in the market fanned investor cautiousness. Upbeat quarterly earnings outweighing inflation worries boosted the morale of global markets."

MARKET QUOTE | Ravi Singh, VP and Head of Research, Share India Securities on IRCTC shares

"As per NSE, stock enters the ban once its open interest crosses 95 per cent of the limit and comes out of it when the open interest is below 80 per cent. Under this criteria, IRCTC came under pressure last week after it was placed under the F&O ban list by NSE on October 20. While the stock is out of the ban list, the volatility is still on the higher side. Traders are building fresh long positions due to huge correction in IRCTC which has a strong back due to its pure monopoly business, robust financials as well as the company's debt-free status. Technically also, IRCTC has a potential to touch the level of Rs 4,600 in the near term with strong support around Rs 4,000 levels."

Stock update: At 1:48 pm, the shares of Indian Railway Catering And Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) were trading at Rs 4,167.90 apiece on the National Stock Exchange (NSE), up 3.62 per cent.
