Indian shares rose to a record high for a seventh consecutive session as blue chips such as Larsen & Toubro extended a rally after the central bank left interest rates unchanged and said it did not expect policy tightening in the near-term. The BSE Sensex gained 0.27% and NSE Nifty rose 0.25%.

Global Indices:

Asian share markets added to their recent rally on Wednesday as investors chose to accentuate the positive in a mixed bag of global economic data, pressuring the safe haven yen to a 10-week trough.

U.S. stocks rose for a third straight session on Tuesday, with the S&P 500 ending at a record close, after positive data on factory activity indicated economic growth was gaining traction following a harsh winter.

European stocks climbed on Tuesday, extending their two-week rally, helped by M&A fever as well as robust French and U.S. factory data.
