The BSE benchmark Sensex on Tuesday recovered by over 27 points in early trade as funds and investors made selective buying ahead of the RBI’s quarterly monetary policy review, amid a firming Asian trend.

Snapping its four—day long losing streak, the 30—share barometer gained by 27.29 points, or 0.13 per cent, to 19,620.57 with capital goods, IT and banking sector stocks leading the recovery. The index had lost nearly 710 points in the last four sessions.

The wide—based National Stock Exchange index Nifty up by 11.85 points, or 0.20 per cent, to 5,843.50.

Brokers said fresh buying by participants before the Reserve Bank’s first quarter monetary policy review today, mainly attributed rise in stock prices.

Besides, a firming trend in the Asian region also supported the upside, they said.
