Mumbai: Market benchmark BSE Sensex zoomed nearly 500 points to hit its life-time high of 40,857.73 in afternoon session on Monday led by strong buying sentiment in metal, banking and telecom stocks amid positive cues from global equities.

After scaling its record peak, the 30-share index was trading 487.76 points, or 1.21 per cent, higher at 40,847.17. Similarly, the broader Nifty soared 136.80 points, or 1.15 per cent, to 12,051.20.

Stock exchanges in Europe also opened on a positive note.
