The benchmark Sensex crossed the 14,500 points level at noon on the Bombay Stock Exchange on Thursday on sustained buying by funds in heavy-weight stocks in capital goods, metal and auto.
The 30-share index, Sensex, which extended its last three days firmness in the opening session, spurted further by 101.45 points at 14,513.40 at 1200 hours. This level was last seen on June 6.
Similarly, the second wide-based National Stock Exchange notched up 20.35 points at 4269.
A constant rise in global stock markets and heavy purchases by foreign funds were the major factors behind the fresh rally on the bourses.
