Sensex up 44 pts in early trade ahead of GDP data

Published On : 30 Nov 2015


Mumbai, Nov 30 (PTI) The benchmark BSE Sensex rose over 44 points to 26,172.72 in early trade on Monday, extending gains for the third straight session as investors indulged in widening their positions ahead of GDP data for the September quarter.

However, caution prevailed ahead of RBI's fifth bi-monthly monetary policy review tomorrow and continuing fund outflows by foreign investors amid weakness at other Asian markets.

The 30-share index, which had gained 352.46 points in the previous two sessions, rose 44.52 points, or 0.17 per cent, at 26,172.72 with auto, capital goods, power, banking, realty and consumer durables sector stocks trading in the positive zone.

The NSE Nifty was also trading higher by 13.90 points, or 0.17 per cent, at 7,956.60.

Brokers said pick up in buying by participants ahead of GDP data for the September quarter, to be released later in the day and hopes that the government will push for a compromise on the GST Bill in the ongoing winter session of Parliament, influenced sentiments.

They said, however, a weak trend at other Asian markets as investors await key US jobs figures and a European Central Bank meeting later this week, limited the gains.

Among other Asian markets, Japan's Nikkei lost 0.79 per cent while Shanghai's Composite index shed 1.19 per cent in early trade. Hong Kong's Hang Seng index was down 0.31 per cent.

The US Dow Jones Industrial Average ended 0.08 per cent down in Friday's trade.
