The benchmark BSE Sensex rose nearly 43 points in early trade on Wednesday on buying by funds in capital goods, consumer durables and realty sector stocks, amid a firming Asian trend.

The 30-share index, which had gained 2.67 points in yesterday's session, moved up by 42.89 points, or 0.21 per cent, to 20,254.82.

In a similar fashion, National Stock Exchange index Nifty gained 11.95 points, or 0.19 per cent, to 6,012.85.

Brokers said increased buying by funds and retail investors and a firming trend overseas, following overnight recovery in the US markets on bargain buying and strong corporate results, helped the trading sentiment to improve here.

In the Asian region, Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index was up by 0.80 per cent, while Japan's Nikkei Index was quoted 0.38 per cent higher in the morning trade on Wednesday.

The US Dow Jones Industrial Average closed 0.47 per cent higher on Tuesday.
