Sensex closes off day’s high

December 10, 2009

A key index of the Indian equities markets closed at its day’s high Thursday, 47 points above the previous close.

The sensitive index (Sensex) of the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) that opened at 17,107 points closed at 17,166.73 points, up 47.5 points from Wednesday’s close at 17,125.22 points.

The benchmark index, which opened lower, had hit an intra-day of 17,231.05 in afternoon but shed some gains towards the close.

At the National Stock Exchange (NSE), the broader 50-share S&P CNX Nifty closed at 5,129.45 points, against the previous close at 5,112 points, a gain of 0.34 percent.

Broader market indices were also in the green owing to buying activity in smaller scrips, with the BSE smallcap index closing 0.83 percent higher and the BSE midcap index up 0.27 percent.
