Muscat Daily - - BUSINESS -

Mum­bai, In­dia - In­dian eq­uity mar­kets on Wed­nes­day pro­vi­sion­ally closed at a record high, with the bench­mark in­dex NSE Nifty set­tling firmly above the 10,000-mark for the first time.

Ex­pec­ta­tions of healthy quar­terly re­sults, cou­pled with broadly pos­i­tive global cues and in­tense buy­ing ac­tiv­ity wit­nessed in bank­ing, metal and au­to­mo­bile stocks lifted the key eq­uity in­dices to new lev­els.

The wider Nifty of the Na­tional Stock Ex­change (NSE) pro­vi­sion­ally closed at 10,020.65 points - up 56.1 points or 0.56 per cent from its pre­vi­ous ses­sion’s close - af­ter it scaled a record in­tra-day high of 10,025.95 points.

The 30-scrip Sen­si­tive In­dex (Sen­sex) of the BSE closed at a new high of 32,382.46 points - up 154.19 points or 0.48 per cent - from its pre­vi­ous close at 32,228.27 points.

The Sen­sex touched a fresh in­tra-day high of 32,413.63 points. The BSE mar­ket breadth was bullish with 1,359 ad­vances and 1,327 de­clines.
