Mumbai: The BSE benchmark Sensex staged a strong comeback by climbing over 444 points to trade above the 34,000-mark in opening trade on Wednesday following fresh spell of buying by domestic investors, triggered by fall in global crude prices.

Besides, positive leads from most other Asian markets also fuelled the uptrend.

The 30-share Sensex climbed 444.39 points, or 1.31 per cent, to 34,291.62 with all the sectoral indices led by realty and oil&gas trading in the positive zone, by rising up to 2.11 per cent.

Meanwhile, the rupee strengthened by 42 paise to 73.15 against the US dollar in early trade in the forex market after global crude prices eased.

Brokers said besides rupee recovery, unabated buying by domestic institutional invstors (DIIs) coupled with covering-up of short positions by speculators too supported the rebound.

Stocks of Aviation companies - Spicejet, InterGlobe and Jet Airways - too fared better, gaining up to 3.35 per cent, supported by falling crude prices.

Meanwhile, DIIs made purchases worth a net of Rs 116.41 crore, while Foreign institutional investors (FIis) sold shares to the tune of Rs 340.35 crore Tuesday, provisional data showed.
