The stock markets experienced fresh record highs today, with the Sensex surging by 474 points, coming close to reaching the 20,000 mark for Nifty. Among the top gainers, ITC stood out, reaching an all-time high of Rs 492 on the BSE and becoming part of the prestigious Rs 6 trillion market cap club, which includes esteemed companies like Reliance Industries, Tata Consultancy Services, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, Hindustan Unilever, and Infosys.

Despite some fluctuations in trading, the key domestic indices performed exceptionally well, primarily driven by the excitement surrounding the listing of Jio Financial Services following a special pre-open session for Reliance Industries. The Sensex reached an intraday high of 67,619.17, while the Nifty50 almost touched the significant milestone of 20,000, closing at 19,991.85.

Sector-wise, most indices concluded the day in positive territory, with the exception of the IT index, which saw a slight decline of 0.66 per cent. Notably, Nifty Pharma, FMCG, healthcare, and Nifty Bank exhibited substantial gains, rising by 1.46 per cent, 1.35 per cent, 1.17 per cent, and 1.13 per cent, respectively. The Nifty Next 50, however, was the only broader market index that experienced a slight drop. Overall, it was a positive and promising day for the markets, with several sectors showcasing significant growth.
