Mumbai: Market showed signs of resilience as the Sensex rose by over 82 points to 26,485.28 on Tuesday after value-buying by investors offset concerns from UK's shock exit from the European Union.
Besides, short-covering ahead of June derivatives expiry on Thursday gave the upside some traction.
The 30-share barometer advanced by 82.32 points or 0.31 percent to 26,485.28 in early trade.
The index had ended flat by rising 5 points in the previous volatile session.

The NSE Nifty too regained the 8,100-mark by rising 29.20 points, or 0.36 percent, to 8,123.90 in early trade.
Brokers said value-buying in select blue-chips may have helped, but the sell-off in other Asian and European markets capped the losses.
