Manufacturing data helps Nifty reclaim 8600-mark

After a holiday-truncated week, the benchmark BSE Sensex rose over 107 points in early trade today on increased buying by funds and retail investors on encouraging manufacturing data for March.

The 30-share index, which had gained 302.65 points in the previous session on last Wednesday, jumped further by 107.44 points, or 0.38%, to 28,367.58.

Capital goods, realty, auto, oil & gas and consumer durables shares saw increased buying activity after an HSBC survey said India’s manufacturing sector output rose in March amid stronger increase in new orders that led firms to boost production levels, brokers said.

Among other Asian markets, Japan’s Nikkei shed 0.72% in early trade today while financial markets in Hong Kong Hang Seng are closed for public holiday.
