The BSE benchmark Sensex failed to hold on to the record intra-session high of 14,564.78 points on Tuesday as the index closed 37 points lower on profit-booking followed by funds selling in heavy-weight stocks.
The 30-share index, Sensex, which had gained nearly 425 points in the past three sessions, gathered 50 points in early trade to touch an intra-day new high of 14,564.78, but succumbed to profit-taking by retail investors. It dipped to close 37.71 points down at 14,478.19.
