Regulator Sebi's new norms on P-notes took markets higher, but stocks could not go the whole hog in view of caution due to US Fed's testimony tomorrow, which is expected to provide timing on balance sheet trimming.

Stability returned after yesterday's glitch and investors are looking forward to corporate quarterly earnings with a sense of optimism.

The BSE 30-share Sensex settled higher by 31.45 points, or 0.10 percent, at 31,747.09 -- a new all-time high. The broader Nifty gained 15 points, or 0.15 percent, to finish at a fresh record of 9,786.05.

There are expectations that key macro data such as inflation and industrial production -- slated for tomorrow -- will be encouraging, which accelerated the buying pace.

The rally was powered by IT and auto stocks.
