Benchmark equity indices settled higher on Wednesday, with Nifty hitting its new record closing level, after buying in power, capital goods, and industrial stocks amid a largely positive trend in global equities. In addition, heavy buying in select index-heavyweight stocks like HDFC Bank and Reliance Industries also boosted the market sentiment.

In a highly volatile trade, the BSE Sensex jumped 149.98 points or 0.20 per cent to settle at 76,606.57. The NSE Nifty gained 58.10 points or 0.25 per cent to end at a new closing peak of 23,322.95.

Retail inflation continued its downward slide to reach a one-year low of 4.75 per cent in May due to a marginal decline of prices in the food basket and remained within the RBI's comfort zone of below 6 per cent, according to government data released on Wednesday.

"Ahead of US inflation data and FOMC meeting, global markets largely remained positive. The consensus indicates expectations of stable US inflation, but the trajectory of potential rate cuts holds significant importance for future direction, as rate cut expectations have tempered to 2 from 3 earlier. While the domestic market is trading at a new high on expectations of the final budget with a focus on growth, which was amplified by the RBI's upgrade in GDP growth forecast," said Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services.
