Benchmark indices surged to new all-time highs on Wednesday, buoyed by sustained bullish sentiment, with broader markets also maintaining their positive trajectory. The BSE's Sensex breached the 75,000 milestone, while the NSE's Nifty 50 reached 22,775 points.

BSE Sensex was up by 354.45 points to settle at a record high of 75,038. Whereas, NSE Nifty 50 rose by 111 points to close at 22,753.

"Indian markets sustained their upward momentum, buoyed by a robust performance in the broader market, albeit slightly lagging behind its Asian and European counterparts. Investor attention remains fixated on the impending release of the FOMC minutes and US inflation data later today. Following the release of strong US job data, market sentiments are inclined towards an anticipation of spike inflation, thereby reducing the likelihood of a near-term rate cut," said Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services.

Market heavyweights dominated the movers' list, with stocks like ITC, Kotak Mahindra Bank, SBI, Bharti Airtel, and Asian Paints emerging as the top gainers.

"Additionally, Fitch's recent downgrade of China's credit rating could potentially reverberate through the global economy, warranting a caution," Nair added.
