Mumbai, Maharashtra: Market benchmark Sensex surged over 146 points in opening trade today on fresh buying by domestic institutional investors amid a strengthening rupee.

Asian markets were also trading in the green as weaker-than-expected US wage growth helped calm investor fears about rising interest rates and inflation.

Meanwhile, investors digested last week's trade talks between the US and China in Beijing, where a consensus emerged on some issues. The 30-share Sensex rose by 146.18 points, or 0.41 percent, to 35,061.56 in early trade. The gauge had lost 261.04 points in the previous two sessions.
