COLOMBO, May 9 (Reuters) - Sri Lankan shares rose for the sixth straight session on Thursday to hit a new 1-1/2 year high, led by banking shares as expectations of a rate cut at the central bank's policy meeting on Friday boosted local investor appetite for stocks.

The main stock index edged up 0.46 percent, or 28.61 points, to 6,238.71, the highest close since Nov. 14, 2011.

'The market is up on positive sentiment as investors expect a rate cut from the tomorrow's policy rate decision,' a stockbroker said on condition of anonymity.

Analysts said they also expect a rate cut at the central bank's May monetary policy announcement. But a Reuters poll showed it will hold rates steady and expects a rate cut in June.

Shares have been on a rising trend on expectations of a fall in interest rates after Treasury Secretary P.B. Jayasundera and the central bank said interest rates could ease in May-June.

The market has gained 8 percent since the treasury secretary's comments on April 9.

The International Monetary Fund, however, last week said Sri Lanka must not loosen monetary conditions as inflation remains a concern, even though prices rose at a slower pace in April than in the previous month.

Turnover was 2.14 billion rupees ($16.97 million), well above than this year's daily average of 1.02 billion rupees.

Foreign investors were net buyers of 194.1 million rupees of shares, extending the net foreign inflow so far this year to 9.31 billion rupees. Last year, the bourse saw a net inflow of $303 million.

The rupee edged up to 126.00/10 per dollar, firmer from Thursday's close of 126.05/08, on bank dollar sales amid tight rupee liquidity in the market ahead of the policy announcement, currency dealers said.

($1 = 126.1000 Sri Lanka rupees)

Profit taking in selected counters led the benchmark index to close with a lesser gain of 28 points with Hemas Holdings (+10.9%), Cargills (+3.1%), Sampath Bank (+2.5%) and Colombo Dockyard (+5.5%) weighing positively on the index. The S&P SL20 index secured a lesser gain of 5 points ending at 3,526.51 points.

S&P SL20 caliber counters booked the top turnover slot: 8 crossings in S&P SL20 caliber counters added 44% to the day’s turnover. Continued interest in Commercial Bank led the counter to record 3 blocks accumulating to 3.3 mn shares at a 52-week high (off-market) price of LKR118.0 while Distilleries and Hatton National Bank recorded two crossings each at LKR185.0 and LKR172.0.

Sampath Bank and Nations Trust Bank traded at their 52-week high price levels as they ended the day with gains of 2.5% and 2.3% respectively.

BFI sector activity strengthened adding 54% to turnover: Investor hunt in banks led the bourse as key focus surrounded National Development Bank, Sampath Bank and Nations Trust Bank with each depicting active on board participation amidst significant gains. Royal Ceramics continued to grab the investor focus as it saw its price move to a new 52-week high at LKR111.9 today. Related counter Lanka Walltile closed the day gaining 6.4%. Access Engineering and Distilleries also saw notable interest.
