Sensex opens marginally higher on firm Asian trend

The Bombay Stock Exchange benchmark Sensex on Monday opened marginally higher by adding 58 points in early trade on investors buying in line with firming trends in Asian markets.

The 30-share index, which had gained 276.85 points in the previous session, added 58.19 points at 9,381.78 in the first five minutes of trading.

Similarly, the wide-based National Stock Exchange's Nifty rose by 15.90 points to 2,844.35.

Marketmen said buying activity was supported by reports of Hong Kong share prices opening 1.8 per cent higher on Monday.
