Around 10.20 a.m., the wider Nifty50 of the National Stock Exchange traded higher by 19.40 points or 0.18 per cent at 10,547.75 points.

The barometer 30-scrip Sensitive Index (Sensex) of the BSE, which opened at 34,381.80 points, traded at 34,378.39 points -- up 72.96 points or 0.21 per cent from its previous session's close.

The Sensex has so far touched a high of 34,402.90 points and a low of 34,284.67 points during the intra-day trade.

On Monday, healthy macro-economic data, along with expectations of robust quarterly corporate earnings, led the equity indices to close on a higher note for the eighth consecutive session.
