Equity benchmark indices rallied for the third consecutive session and settled at their new all-time high levels on Wednesday following Asian peers and buying in Reliance Industries.

The BSE Sensex climbed 620.73 points or 0.80 per cent to settle at a new closing peak of 78,674.25. The NSE Nifty50 went up by 147.50 points or 0.62 per cent to settle at a record closing peak of 23,868.80. Telecom, cement, oil & gas, and banking sectors led the gains today.

"The domestic market hit a new peak, bolstered by a rally in large-cap stocks, where the valuation is relatively fair. In contrast, mid-and small-cap stocks saw profit-taking due to valuation concerns. Currently, the financials & consumption stocks are catching up driven by improved balance sheets, a strong GDP growth forecast, and softening inflation. Global market sentiments reflected similar trends, with a consensus on imminent rate cuts," said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.
