A benchmark index of Indian equities scaled the 20,000-point mark Tuesday, fuelled by some impressive buying by foreign funds and overall positive mood in other markets. Soon after the opening bell, the 30-share sensitive index (Sensex) of the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) shot up to 20,088.96 points, the highest in 32 months. This was for the first time since Jan 17, 2008, the index breached the 20,000-point mark.
But profit taking resulted in steady losses for the index, falling to 19,860.88 points at one stage, before rising again to 19,966.70 points, with a gain of 60.60 points or 0.30 percent over the previous close at 19,906.10 points.
Monday had seen the Sensex gain 311.35 points or 1.59 percent at 19,906.1 points over the previous close at 19,594.75 points, with foreign funds pouring in $373.25 million into the markets.
