The benchmark BSE Sensex recovered nearly 54 points in early trade today on emergence of buying by funds and retail investors amid positive cues from other Asian markets.
The 30-share index, which had lost 17.46 points in the previous session, rose by 53.97 points, or 0.21 per cent, to 25,877.72, with stocks of healthcare, infrastructure, consumer durables, realty and power sectors leading the recovery.
On similar lines, the National Stock Exchange index Nifty rose 14.60 points, or 0.19 per cent, to 7,729.40.
Brokers said fresh buying by funds amid a firming trend in other Asian markets, after US markets surged to record highs on the back of upbeat jobs data and easing crude prices, also helped the Sensex trade in positive terrain.
They added that expectations from the upcoming Budget have also boosted the sentiment here.
