MUMBAI: The stock market benchmark Sensex on Thursday settled 156 points higher after racing close to a new peak of 19000 on global cues and sustained inflow of funds, despite mute quarterly results of IT bellwether Infosys.

In a volatile trade, the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) index fluctuated in a range of 18832.65 and 18536.97 before ending at a new closing high of 18814.07, a net rise of 155.82 points over Wednesday’s close of 18658.25.

The Sensex, which completed the last 1000-point journey in just two days, extended its rally to third straight session even though Infosys results failed to cheer the market. — PTI
