Infosys was trading higher by 0.22 per cent ahead of Q3 earnings, to be announced after trading hours today.

The big gainers that lifted the key indices to new highs were ICICI Bank, HDFC Ltd, Kotak Bank, Tata Motors, Reliance Industries, L&T, Axis Bank, Wipro, SBI, Tata Steel, NTPC and HDFC Bank, gaining up to 1 per cent.

Domestic institutional investors had bought shares a worth Rs. 770.02 crore, while FIIs sold equities to the tune of Rs. 623.63 crore yesterday.

Asian markets were trading with gains after Wall Street hit fresh all-time high yesterday.

Hong Kong's Hang Seng was up 0.49 per cent, while Japan's Nikkei rose 0.04 per cent and Shanghai Composite Index gained 0.08 per cent in early trade today.
