Let’s take a quick look at what happened in Dalal Street today.
Domestic actions extended the losing streak until the fourth straight session and fell back. Despite favorable growth in basic sector output, negative signals from global markets are adding pressure on national benchmarks. Banks, information technology, real estate and financial services recorded sales, while energy, metals and pharmaceuticals stocks recorded purchases. Auto stocks reacted to their September sales data. BSE Sensex dropped over 360 points to settle at around 58,765 points. The BSE barometer has lost more than 1,650 points from the peak. Nifty50 lost 86 points to end the day at 17,532. Larger markets were mixed as the mid-cap BSE index fell but the small-cap index moved into the green. The India VIX fear indicator has fallen by more than 6 percent.
On BSE Sensex, Bajaj Finserv led the losers, losing more than 3 percent. Maruti Suzuki, Bharti Airtel, Asian Paints, Bajaj Finance and HDFC each lost 2%. NTPC, ICICI Bank, TCS, IndusInd Bank and HDFC Bank sold 1% each. Of the winners, Mahindra & Mahindra gained 3 percent, while Dr Reddy’s, Ultratech Cement, Sun Pharma, Power Grid and Tata Steel each added one percent. Bajaj Auto, Nestlé, Reliance, Axis Bank and Titan have also moved into the green. About 390 stocks reached upper circuit limits for the day, while over 120 stocks reached lower circuit. About 85 stocks tested their 52 week highs during the session.
