After two sessions of losses, the benchmark BSE Sensex recovered sharply by over 127 points in early trade today on emergence of buying by funds and retail investors amid a firming trend in other Asian markets.

Also, the National Stock Exchange index Nifty gained 39.10 points, or 0.49 per cent, to 7,972.
