Muscat Daily - - BUSINESS -

Mum­bai, In­dia - Boosted by the on­set of quar­terly re­sults and par­lia­ment’s mon­soon session, the key In­dian eq­uity in­dices - the Sen­sex and the Nifty - edged up to close at a fresh high on Mon­day.

The wider Nifty of the Na­tional Stock Ex­change (NSE) set­tled above the 9,900 mark to close at a new high of 9,915.95 points - up 29.6 points or 0.3 per cent from the pre­vi­ous session’s close - af­ter touch­ing a record high of 9,928.2 points in­tra-day.

The 30-scrip Sen­si­tive In­dex (Sen­sex) of the BSE also closed at a new high of 32,074.78 points - up 54.03 points or 0.17 per cent, from its pre­vi­ous close at 32,020.75 points. It scaled a fresh in­tra-day high of 32,131.92 points.

Mar­ket ob­servers opined that in­vestors’ sen­ti­ments were up­lifted by pos­i­tive global cues and in­flow of for­eign funds.

In an­other de­vel­op­ment, the mar­ket cap­i­tal­i­sa­tion (m-cap) of Reliance In­dus­tries (RIL) crossed the R5tn mark for the first time.

The BSE mid-cap in­dex inched up 0.07 per cent and the BSE small-cap in­dex by 0.01 per cent.
