Sensex up 85 points; Nifty climbs to 9,913


Mumbai: The benchmark BSE Sensex was trading higher by nearly 100 points and the NSE index Nifty above the 9,900-mark owing to positive global cues.

At 9.55 a.m., the 30-share BSE index Sensex was up 84.74 points or 0.26 per cent at 32,105.49 and the 50-share NSE index was up 26.45 points or 0.27 per cent at 9,912.80.

Among BSE sectoral indices, IT index was the star-performer and was up 1.27 per cent, followed by TECk 1.13 per cent, metal 0.63 per cent and auto 0.41 per cent. On the other hand, FMCG index was down 0.85 per cent, followed by realty 0.17 per cent and capital goods 0.09 per cent.

Top five Sensex gainers were Wipro (+4.45%), Adani Ports (+1.6%), Infosys (+1.53%), ONGC (+1.14%) and ICICI Bank (+0.96%), while the major losers were ITC (-1.93%), Axis Bank (-0.41%), Coal India (-0.28%), HUL (-0.23%) and L&T (-0.23%).

Asian shares

Asian stocks mostly rose on Monday, spurred by record high closes for the Dow and S&P 500 on bets that the Federal Reserve's policy will remain accommodative following lacklustre US data, which sent the dollar reeling to a 10-month low.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan advanced 0.2 per cent on Monday. Japanese markets were closed for a holiday. Australian shares were 0.3 per cent lower, while South Korea's KOSPI jumped 0.3 per cent.
