    Market on Thursday:

    Indian benchmark indices recovered some of the previous session losses to end on a positive note in a highly volatile session on May 25, helped by gains in FMCG and auto stocks.

    At close, the Sensex was up 98.84 points or 0.16% at 61,872.62, and the Nifty was up 35.80 points or 0.20% at 18,321.20.

    Amid weak global cues, the market started on a negative note and extended the losses as the day progressed but buying in the final half-an-hour of trading in auto, FMCG and realty names helped indices make a smart comeback.

    Bajaj Auto, Adani Enterprises, Bharti Airtel, ITC and Divis Laboratories were among the biggest gainers on the Nifty, while Wipro, Tata Motors, UPL, Sun Pharma and HDFC were among the big losers.

    Except metal and PSU Bank, all sectoral indices ended in the green. The realty index was up a percent, while auto, capital goods, FMCG and power gained 0.5 percent each.

    The BSE midcap index rose 0.36 percent and the smallcap index added 0.27 percent.
