Benchmark Sensex snapped its four- session losing streak to end marginally higher today on selective buying by investors. The 30-share index opened higher at 29,369.90 buoyed by forecast of a normal monsoon and advanced to a high of 29,388.25 but succumbed to profit-booking and slipped to 29,241.48, before concluding 17.47 points, or 0.06 per cent higher at 29,336.57. The broader NSE Nifty shed 1.65 points, or 0.02 per cent, to end at 9,103.50.
