The benchmark Sensex recovered over 43 points on Thursday helped by buying in select blue-chip stocks amid mixed global cues.

Still, investors treaded cautiously as they try to assess the long-term fallout of Britain’s vote to leave the European Union.

The 30-share index was trading higher by 43.10 points, or 0.15%, at 27,209.97. Metal, realty, consumer durables, PSU, capital goods, healthcare, FMCG and banking stocks showed up in the green, with gains up to 0.76%.

The gauge had lost 111.89 points in the previous session on Tuesday. The stock exchange was shut on Wednesday on account of Eid-Ul-Fitr.

Also, the NSE Nifty rose 7.80 points, or 0.09%, to 8,343.75.

Brokers said fresh buying in select blue-chips and a mixed trend in Asia because of fears of instability in the European Union had their bearing on the mood here.

Hong Kong’s Hang Seng was up 0.74% while Japan’s Nikkei shed 0.23 per cent in early trade today. Shanghai Composite was down 0.14%.

The US Dow Jones Industrial Average ended 0.44% higher on Wednesday.
