MUMBAI - A benchmark index of Indian equities opened almost flat with a positive bias Thursday, taking cues from stability in the global markets.
The 30-share sensitive index (Sensex) of the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) opened at 20,038.83 points - up 23.03 points from the previous close of 20,015.80 points.
At the National Stock Exchange, the 50-share S&P CNX Nifty also opened almost flat.
Of the 30 stocks that constitute Sensex, 15 were in the red while other half were in the positive.
At the broader market, the BSE midcap and smallcap were also in the positive. However, there was some selling pressure in metal and auto stocks.
Larsen & Toubro, Tata Consultancy Services and Mahindra and Mahindra lost more than one percent.
