New Delhi: Market maintained its post-Budget momentum for the third day as the BSE Sensex surged 202 points in opening trade on Thursday.

Sensex is trading at 24445.62 while the the 50-share NSE Nifty is at 7425.80.

Yesterday, Sensex surged 464 points to close at 24,243 -- nearly a one-month high while Nifty, after reclaiming the crucial 7,300-mark, settled at 7,368.85, up 146.55 points, or 2.03 percent.

 

Global equity markets pushed higher Wednesday as stabilizing commodity prices and hopes for additional monetary stimulus lifted most bourses again after Tuesday`s big rally.

 

The gains were strongest in Asia, where markets continued to cheer a stimulus measure Monday by the People`s Bank of China to cut its reserve requirement for banks.
