Sensex briefly turns negative before firming up

MUMBAI (Reuters) - The BSE Sensex briefly turned negative on Thursday after rising as much as 0.65 percent as investors booked profits even as Asian markets rallied after the U.S. Federal Reserve hiked interest rates, as expected, on Wednesday.

Both the BSE and the broader Nifty were trading slightly firmer at 10:29 a.m.
