The benchmark Sensex shares climbed 115 points in early trading today, helped by buying in auto, metals and FMCG stocks amid a firm trend in global markets.

IndusInd Bank was the top gainer in the Sensex pack, rising 1.10%, followed by HUL, Tata Steel, NTPC, SBI, ITC, Nestle India and Maruti.

On the other hand, HCL Tech, Infosys, Tech Mahindra and Axis Bank were the losers.

In Thursday’s previous session, BSE’s 30-stock benchmark finished up 160 points at 62,570.68. The broader NSE Nifty advanced 48.85 points to settle at 18,609.35.

In Asian markets, stock exchanges in Tokyo, Shanghai, Seoul and Hong Kong were trading with gains in mid-term trades.

Stocks on Wall Street ended higher in Thursday’s overnight session.

The rupee rose 19 paise to 82.19 against the US dollar in early trading on Friday.

Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) were net sellers in the capital markets as they unloaded shares worth Rs 1,131.67 crore on Thursday, according to data from the exchange.

The international oil benchmark, Brent, was trading up 0.85% at $76.80 a barrel.
