At the headline level, the BSE barometer of 30-shares zoomed 937 points in the intra-day deals and hit a record high level of 53,888 on the BSE, led by Titan Company (up 4 per cent), HDFC, IndusInd Bank, Sun Pharma, SBI, and Nestle India. It pared gains marginally and ended at 53,823 levels, up 873 points or 1.65 per cent.
