In early trade, Sensex and Nifty made an all-time high of 77,145 and 23,481 respectively.

India volatility index (India VIX) is down 2.22 per cent, at 14.07 points.

Among the sectoral indices, IT, fin service, realty, serv sector, and metal are major gainers while FMCG, media, and energy are major losers.

Vaishali Parekh, Vice President-Technical Research, Prabhudas Lilladher said that the Nifty has witnessed a consolidation phase since the last three sessions with 23,400 zone acting as a tough barrier and would need a decisive breach above to trigger further rise in the coming days.

"The major support zone for the index is maintained near the 22,800 levels while on the upside we can expect 23,800 levels as the initial target in the coming sessions," he said.

In Sensex pack, Wipro (NS:WIPR), Tech Mahindra (NS:TEML), Nestle (NS:NEST), Titan Company (NS:TITN), Bajaj Finance (NS:BJFN), HCL Tech (NS:HCLT), Kotak Mahindra Bank (NS:KTKM), Infosys (NS:INFY), TCS (NS:TCS), and M&M (NS:MAHM) are the top gainers while Reliance (NS:RELI), Power Grid (NS:PGRD), and HUL are the top losers.
