Sensex rises 131 points to record 28,178

Extending their record-breaking run, the Sensex on Monday surged 131.22 points to end at new peak of 28,177.88 and the Nifty rose 40.85 points to fresh closing high of 8,430.75 on the back of positive cues on the trade deficit front and robust gains logged by SBI and Tata Motors.

The rally was chiefly led by auto, power, refinery and public sector banking shares. Recent macroeconomic data has reaffirmed investors' view that the Indian economy is on track for a smart recovery at a time when Japan has slipped into recession, say traders.

SBI was the star performer of the day with a rise of 5.44 per cent on the back of analyst upgrades after a robust set of numbers on Friday.
