Mumbai: The BSE benchmark index Sensex today closed at fresh record high of 21,373.66 points by gaining 35.99 points on funds buying driven by strong corporate earnings by Larsen & Toubro and housing finance major HDFC.

The barometer rose further by 35.99 points, or 0.17 per cent, to settle at new all-time high of 21,373.66, just a day after it scaled the peak of 21,337.67 points. In the previous three sessions the 30-share index has gained 274 points.

The gauge still remained a little away from an intra-day high of 21,483.74 touched on December 9 when the results of Assembly elections were announced. It touched an intra-day high of 21,409.66 today.

The broad-based National Stock Exchange index Nifty rose by 6.70 points, or 0.11 per cent to 6,345.65, after touching a high of 6,355.60.

Brokers said trading sentiment remained bullish on steady inflow of corporate earnings by bluechips, latest by Larsen and Toubro.

Attractive third quarter earnings were announced by HDFC, Amara Raja Batteries and Torrent Pharma this week.
