The domestic equity indices hit a record high on Monday led by a sharp rally in IT stocks on better than expected Q3 results.

The Sensex surged 759.49 points, or 1.05%, to end at 73,327.94, while the Nifty 50 ended 202.90 points, or 0.93%, higher at 22,097.45.

“Q3 earning season had a positive start and is further expected to be propelled by the BFSI segment, where many heavyweights are likely to post their results this week. This will support the overall ongoing market momentum and stock-specific action," said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.
