The benchmark BSE Sensex rose almost 100 points in early trade on Tuesday, extending its uptrend for the second day, on sustained buying by participants amid a firming trend in Asia.
The covering-up of short positions by speculators ahead of the monthly expiry in the derivatives segment on Thursday supported the upside.
The 30-share barometer, which had rallied 195.42 points in the previous session, rose further by 99.65 points, or 0.38 per cent, to 26,133.78.
Also, the NSE Nifty gained 17 points, or 0.21 per cent, to 7,942.15.
