Mumbai: Indian equities staged a strong comeback after two days of decline, with the flagship BSE Sensex surging by nearly 470 points to end at 33,066 as participants accumulated recently beaten-down banking, metal and consumer durable stocks.

The broader Nifty followed suit and went past the crucial 10,100 level.

Also, strengthening rupee against the dollar fulled the uptrend.

Markets benefited from value-buying in beaten-down shares and a mixed trend on Asian bourses.

Meanwhile, fears of a full-blown trade war between the US and China kept investors edgy.

European stock markets recovered slightly at the start of trading on Monday following a worldwide slump for equities ahead of the weekend break and short covering, broker said.

The domestic market recovered from its early losses, with banking, metal, finance consumer durables, capital goods, auto, PSU and realty stocks showing strength.

However, during the day, it had touched a low of 32,515.17.

The index had lost 539.64 points in the previous two sessions following a global sell-offs due to fears of a trade war as US President Donald Trump announced tariffs on Chinese goods.
