New Delhi: Equity benchmarks Sensex and Nifty opened on a positive note on Wednesday supported by persistent foreign capital inflows.

However, gains were capped as most of the Asian shares turned negative in line with an overnight drop in US stocks. Rising crude oil prices also weighed on investor sentiment. The 30-share Sensex was trading 64.24 points or 0.11 per cent higher at 58,311.33. 

Similarly, Nifty advanced 22.05 points or 0.13 per cent to 17,402.05 in initial deals.

Titan was the top gainer in the Sensex pack, rising 0.93 per cent, followed by Bajaj Auto, L&T, M&M, Infosys, Nestle India, Reliance Industries and Bharti Airtel.

On the other hand, IndusInd Bank, Axis Bank, HDFC twins, HCL Tech and Tata Steel were among the laggards.

In the previous session, the Sensex ended 69.33 points or 0.12 per cent higher at 58,247.09. The broader NSE Nifty advanced 24.70 points or 0.14 per cent to its fresh closing record of 17,380.

Elsewhere in Asia, bourses in Tokyo, Shanghai and Hong Kong were trading on a negative note in mid-session deals, while Seoul was in the green.

US equities ended with losses in the overnight session.

Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) were net buyers in the capital market as they purchased shares worth Rs 1,649.60 crore on Tuesday, as per provisional exchange data. Also Read: Ola Electric S1, S1 Pro go on sale: Here’s how to complete booking of electric scooters
