The Nifty50 closed at 10,147.55 points after touching a fresh high of 10,178.95 points during intra-day trade, while the Sensex closed at 32,402.37 points - down 21.39 points, or 0.07 per cent. The gauge had gained 610.64 points in the previous seven sessions.

The broader NSE index closed down 0.06 percent at 10,141.15, while the benchmark BSE index ended 0.01 percent lower at 32,400.51.
