Following firm Asian cues and healthy quarterly earnings announced so far, the Nifty50 on the National Stock Exchange (NSE) also traded over the 11,000-mark, with marginal gains from its previous close.

According to market observers, heavy selling pressure on the banking and auto indices trimmed the gains on the domestic indices.

As mentioned, Sensex has touched a record intra-day high of 36,740.07 points so far and a low of 36,528.05 points. The BSE market breadth, however, was bearish with 1,612 declines and 693 advances.
