India’s benchmark indices, which hit a record high for a third consecutive session on Thursday morning, closed on a flat note. The Bombay Stock Exchange Sensex closed 0.84 points up at 32,383.30, while the National Stock Exchange Nifty ended at 10,020.55, 0.10 points down.

Earlier in the day, Nifty had risen by 0.94% to set a fresh record of 10,114.85. The Sensex had also gained around 0.90% to touch 32,672.66, a life-time high.

Since Thursday was the last day to trade for derivatives expiring in July, markets remained upbeat with increased activity. Positive cues from HCL Technologies quarter report and global markets had contributed to the rally.

HDFC and Hindustan Lever were among the major gainers on the Sensex during Thursday’s session, while TCS, Tata Motors and Bharti Airtel were the biggest losers on the index.

Housing Development Finance Corporation, whose stocks were up by more than 6%, was the biggest gainer on both indices. Banking stocks including HDFC Bank, Yes Bank, Kotak Bank and IndusInd Bank were also in the green.
