BSE benchmark Sensex rose over 200 points in early trade Wednesday following gains in auto, metals and banking stocks amid unabated buying by domestic institutional investors and rupee recovery.


The 30-share index spurted 220.38 points, or 0.64 per cent, to 34,519.85. The barometer had lost 175 points on Tuesday. Sectoral indices, led by capital goods, auto, oil and gas, metal and healthcare, rose up to 1.50 per cent.


The NSE Nifty too was up by 45.55 points, or 0,43 per cent, at 10,346.60. The rupee was trading higher by 23 paise at 74.16 against the American currency in early deals. There was continued buying by domestic institutional investors as well as select purchases by retail investors, traders said. -- PTI
