European markets were also trading in the green in mid-session deals.

The US markets had ended with gains on Thursday.

“Mirroring a firm trend in the global market and in response to declining commodity prices, the domestic market maintained its positive trend. The up-move was supported by broad-based buying except in IT,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.
