Sensex up 54 points in early trade
Mumbai: The benchmark BSE Sensex today rose over 54 points in early trade, extending gains for the second straight day, as participants made selective buying in shares of RIL, ONGC, SBI and Infosys.

The 30-share index gained 54.14 points, or 0.21 percent, to 25,575.33. The gauge had gained 330.71 points in the last session on late heavy fund-based buying.

The wide-based National Stock Exchange index Nifty moved up by 14.60 points, 0.19 percent, to 7,646.30.

Brokers said selective buying by participants despite a mixed trend on other Asian bourses, amidst deepening crisis in Iraq, influenced the sentiments here.

They said comments by RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan that India is better prepared to deal with any fallout from the ongoing Iraq crisis had a positive impact.

In the Asian region, Hong Kong's Hang Seng index shed 0.32 percent, while Japan's Nikkei moved up by 0.23 percent in early trade today.

The US Dow Jones Industrial Average ended 0.16 percent higher ahead of an upcoming Federal Reserve policy statement.
