Sensex Snaps 4-Day Rally, Nifty Holds 7,700

The BSE Sensex fell slightly on Thursday, retreating from record highs earlier in the session, as investors snapped a powerful four-day rally by booking profits in recent outperformers such as Hindalco Industries.

Trading was marred after exchange operator BSE Ltd, which operates the Sensex, suffered around a three-hour trading halt because of a network outage.

The Sensex provisionally fell 0.07 per cent to end at 25,823.75 points after earlier hitting a record high at 25,999.08 points.

The Nifty fell 0.13 per cent and ended at a provisional 7,714.80 points after earlier hitting a record high at 7,754.65 points. The index had gained 3.1 per cent over the previous four sessions.

Hindalco shares fell 2.4 per cent.
