Updated: Dec 17, 2023

The BSE Sensex jumped 431.02 points, or 0.63 per cent, to close at a new record high of 69,296.14. The broader index Nifty also climbed 168.50 points, or 0.81 percent, to hit its lifetime high of 20,855.30.


New Delhi: On Tuesday, the collective market capitalization of BSE-listed companies reached an unprecedented high of ₹346.47 lakh crore, propelled by record-breaking performances from key benchmark indices, Sensex and Nifty, and sustained inflows of foreign funds.


This surge has translated into a wealth increase of ₹2.99 lakh crore for equity investors, marking a substantial upswing in market sentiment. Analysts attribute this positive momentum to a shift in strategy by foreign institutional investors, who have transitioned from selling to consistent buying over the past week. Such a trend underscores institutional confidence in the Indian market.
