Today the index recorded its sixth consecutive increase, taking its gains since closing at 5,473.2 on July 13 to 4.27%.

The winning streak is now the longest seen since early February when the index rallied for 12 sessions straight.

Investors will be hoping the current run can eclipse that formidable effort.
