The National Stock Exchange (NSE) Nifty50 index which opened near 11,711.55 closed 44.05 points higher at 11,713.20.
During its trading session, it touched an intraday high of 11,729.35. The market continued to consolidate for another trading session where the BSE-Sensex closes above the psychological mark of 39,000 levels.
However, the profit booking in mid cap and small cap stocks stopped Nifty to cross above all-time high.
Taking cues from the previous trading session it is expected to see a flat opening in today's trading session.
