Sensex trades 82 points higher at 33,000 mark; auto, power, consumer durables drag index

Mumbai: The Sensex tested the 33,000 level in opening trade on Tuesday after some value-buying in select stocks despite retail inflation rising to 7-month high in October.

The rupee's modest recovery against the dollar and a mixed global trend were the other deciders.

Retail or CPI inflation rose to 7-month high of 3.58 percent in October, driven up by costlier food items, particularly vegetables.
