Rain forecast washes out some gains; Sensex off new peak

Tags: Stock Market
The benchmark S&P BSE Sensex fell from historic high due to tail-end selling from operators following forecast of below normal monsoon this year but still ended the shortened week up 59 points at 22,688.

The BSE and NSE were closed on April 24 on account of voting in the third and last phase of Lok Sabha elections in Maharashtra, including Mumbai.

The Sensex opened higher at 22,644.75 and shot up further to a life-time high of 22,939.
