Which ASX 200 shares are creating price records today?

WiseTech Global Ltd (ASX: WTC)

ASX 200 tech giant WiseTech reached a new 52-week high of $87.41 today. This logistics software company continues to attract investors due to the popularity of its products.

This ASX 200 industrial share has reset its 52-week high once again, reaching $17.55 today. The engineering company does a lot of consultancy work with major miners and appears to be riding a wave of cautious optimism in the resources sector in light of China's intention to stimulate its economy.
