Sensex extends gains, up 62 points in early trade
Mumbai: The benchmark BSE index Sensex extended gains for the second straight day by adding nearly 62 points in early trade Tuesday on increased buying by funds and retail investors amid a firming Asian trend.

The 30-share barometer, which had gained 141.43 points in the previous session, rose further by 61.95 points, or 0.29 percent, to 21,267 with banking, metal and capital goods sectors stocks leading the rise.

The National Stock Exchange index Nifty moved up by 19.50 points, or 0.31 percent, to 6322.80.

Brokers said increased buying by funds as well as retail investors on positive cues from other Asian bourses mainly boosted the trading sentiments here.

Among other Asian markets, Hong Kong's Hang Seng rose by 0.49 percent while Japan's Nikkei by 1.48 percent in early trade today.
