Sensex opens at record high


Mumbai: The market gained more than a percent in early trade on Friday following stimulus package announced by European Central Bank.

The Sensex rose to an all time high at 275.61 points to 29281.63 and the Nifty climbed 66.55 points to 8827.95. About 523 shares have advanced, 92 shares declined, and 175 shares are unchanged on the BSE. The global cues are positive with European Central Bank’s Mario Draghi announcing a bond-buying programme worth over one trillion euros to stave off the deflation threat.
