As per the market experts, "The domestic market sustained its upward momentum, with a reduction in US PCE inflation raising hopes for a rate cut by the FED in September. This optimism contributed to the strong performance of IT stocks. We anticipate this trend will persist in the near term due to expectations of a rebound in discretionary spending."

"Investors are now focusing on upcoming US job data and the Fed Chair's speech for further indication on interest rates," they added.

The market had started flat on Monday. The Sensex was trading above 79,000 with marginal gains and Nifty was around 24,000.
