Sensex recovers over 79 points in early trade

Mumbai (PTI): The benchmark BSE Sensex recovered over 79 points in early trade today on the back of gains in realty, consumer durable, healthcare and auto stocks amid a firming Asian trend.

The 30-share barometer, which had lost almost 485 points in the past five sessions, recovered by 79.79 points, or 0.38 per cent, to 20,773.03 points in early trade today.

Similarly, the National Stock Exchange index Nifty moved up by 22.90 points, or 0.37 per cent, to 6,185.15.

Meanwhile in Asia, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index rose by 0.64 per cent, while Japan’s Nikkei was up by 1.04 per cent in early trade today.
