Mumbai: Continuing a bullish trend, Sensex and Nifty extended their gains in Friday's early trade. 30-share BSE Sensex opened with a jump of 81.19 points on 33,228.32 while the broader 50-share NSE Nifty started trading on 10,362.30, up by 18.50 points.
The markets have seen a renewed spell of bullish sentiments this week, mainly on the back of government's Rs 2.11 lakh crore recapitalization package for state-owned banks which saw the PSU bank stocks zooming. Resultantly, the Sensex went past the psychological mark of 33,000 and Nifty consolidated itself above 10,000.
In Friday's early trade, pharma stocks were leading the charge with the Nifty Pharma sub-index gaining almost a per cent. The Nifty PSU Bank sub-index was seeing some correction, being down a per cent from previous closing.
Kotak Bank, Maruti, Cipla and Sun Pharma were the major gainers while Yes Bank, Infratel, ICICI Bank and Wipro were losing the most.
