Sensex, Nifty hit new highs; early monsoon arrival lifts sentiment

Mumbai: Markets continued their record-setting streak for yet another session today with both the Sensex and Nifty ending at lifetime highs as investors cheered the early arrival of monsoon.

Monsoon rains hit Kerala and the North East today, two days before the normal onset date, boosting optimism about a rebound in the rural economy.

The BSE 30-share Sensex resumed higher at 31,111.73 and weathered bouts of volatility to touch a new all-time intra-day high of 31,220.38, surpassing its previous record of 31,214.39, reached in yesterday's trade.

In four days, the index has gained 857.76 points.
