The long rally stalled today. It's time to catch breath for the stock benchmarks. The indices settled steady, but hit a fresh record on the eve of the futures and options (F&O) derivatives contract expiry for January.
Both 36,162 and 11,086 came up as new closing peaks for the Sensex and the Nifty, respectively.
SBI maintained its lead in the Sensex lot, but Bharti Airtel lost the plot with a loss of more than 6 per cent.
On the Nifty chart, 28 scrips rose and 22 fell.

The Nifty went up for the sixth consecutive session and formed a small bullish candle on the daily chart. The 11,100-11125 range on the index coincides with the 161 per cent price extension of the rally seen during 2008-10 and requires attention, analysts said.
