Sensex @ 18K, history is made

October 09, 2007
The BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty made history on Tuesday, October 9, after zooming to dizzying heights. After a roller-coaster ride, the Sensex has finally conquered the 18K-mark.

After closing at a loss of 282 points at 17,491 on Monday, the Sensex staged a historic comeback on Tuesday backed by frenzied buying after the news of the UPA and Left meeting on October 22 put an end to the worries of an impending election.
