Mumbai, November 4: A bout of volatility was witnessed in morning trade as key benchmark indices pared gains after surging, still up by 97 points in late morning trade following sustained buying mainly in auto, consumer durables, realty, capital goods and metal sectors amid firmness in Asian cues.

The 30-share index, Sensex, resumed higher at 26,704.02 and hovered in a range of 26,800.06 and 26,656.12 before quoted at 26,688.77, at 1115 hours, showing a rise of 98.18 points, or 0.37 per cent, from its last close.

At the overseas, Asian shares rose in early trade, taking early cues from overnight Wall Street gains, while investors' sharper risk appetite lifted US debt yields and supported the dollar.

US stocks finished higher yesterday, shrugging off lackluster corporate results to extend gains for a second session in a row, as energy shares helped prop up the main indexes.
