The sectoral indices are all green except the realty sector, which dropped during the first hour of the market and then returned to the green. The media and auto sectors are a bit flat today; however, they are still in the green. 

This rebound in the markets today has been primarily a result of the stabilized oil prices, even though the Middle East conflict is on the rise. The global market also added some positive sentiment as it resurged, which the domestic market is following today.
