Mumbai, June 10 (IANS) Indian equity indices opened at an all-time high on Monday.

In early trade, Sensex and Nifty made a new all-time high of 77,079 and 23,411 respectively.

At 9:45 am, Sensex was at 76,703, up 9 points and Nifty was at 23,293, up 4 points.

Broader markets are in an uptrend. The Nifty midcap 100 was up 230 points or 44 per cent, at 53,425 and the Nifty smallcap was up 133 points or 0.78 per cent, at 17,349.

India volatility index (India VIX) is at 17.09, up nearly one per cent.

“It is important to understand that the major driving force in this bull market is the Indian retail investors including HNIs. Big selling by FIIs is getting eclipsed by the aggressive buying of DIIs and retail investors,” experts said.
