The Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) benchmark Sensex today climbed 153 points to close at one-month high level of 19,170 on funds buying in financial and interest sensitive stocks as slowing inflation and lower commodity prices raised hopes of an rate cut by RBI, amid a firming global trend.

The Sensex rose 153.37 points, or 0.81 per cent, to close at 19,169.83, a level matching with March 18, led by buying in consumer durables, realty, capital goods and banking stocks.

The index had gained 285 points in the previous session.
