    Published on December 16, 2010

    The Bombay Stock Exchange benchmark Sensex rose by over 65 points in early trade thursday as investors and funds made selective purchases ahead of the RBI’s monetary policy review later in the day.

    The 30-share barometer, which fell by 151.42 points in the previous session, recovered by 65.54 points, or 0.33 per cent, to 19,713.31 on the back of a recovery in technology, healthcare and oil and gas sector stocks.

    Similarly, the National Stock Exchange’s Nifty index moved up by 18.35 points, or 0.31 per cent, to 5,910.65.

    Analysts said the trading sentiment was cautious, with investors hopeful that the RBI would take a breather in its monetary tightening stance.

    Meanwhile, in the Asian region, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index was down by 0.27 per cent, while Japan’s Nikkei shed 0.10 per cent in early trade thursday. The US Dow Jones Industrial Average closed 0.17 per cent lower in Wednesday’s trade.
