Sensex trims some early gains; up 53 points in late morning deals

Mumbai: Surrendering some of its early gains, the BSE benchmark Sensex was trading higher by 53 points at 20,002.17 in late morning deals on the back of buying mainly in FMCG, Healthcare, IT, Realty and Teck sectors coupled with higher Asian cues.

The 30-share index resumed higher at 19,999.51 and firmed up further to 20,059.03 before quoting at 20,002.17 at 1030hrs, showing a gain of 53.44 points of 0.27 percent from its last close.

The NSE 50-share Nifty also moved up by 6.55 points or 0.11 percent to 5,979.85 at 1030hrs.

Meanwhile, the Reserve Bank yesterday said it has decided to conduct a special 3-day repo at an interest rate of 10.25 percent for a notified amount of Rs 25,000 crore with a view to enabling banks to meet the liquidity requirements of mutual funds.

Asian markets were mostly higher in their early trade after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke yesterday said Fed’s asset purchases “are by no means on a preset course” and could even be expanded should economic conditions warrant.

Key benchmark indices in Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan and Indonesia were up 0.01 percent to 0.56 percent while indices in China, Singapore and South Korea were down by 0.5 percent to 0.78 percent.
