Chile stock index ends at new life closing high
SANTIAGO Dec 21 (Reuters) - Chile's leading share index rose to a closing high on Monday, led by utility and commodity shares and underpinned by gains on global bourses, traders said.
Chile's blue-chip IPSA index .IPSA closed a preliminary 0.65 percent firmer at 3,522.08 points, surpassing the previous record close of 3,499.50 points set on July 3, 2007.
The index hit an all-time intraday high of 3,523.22 points earlier in the session. Like other regional bourses, the IPSA has powered higher this year and is up around 48 percent year to date. (Reporting by Aaron Nelsen; Editing by Dan Grebler)
