    Key domestic benchmarks ended with modest losses on Friday, dragged by Reliance Industries and HDFC twins. Global cues were subdued following a record contraction in US gross domestic in the second quarter.

    The S&P BSE Sensex dropped 129.18 points or 0.34% at 37,606.89. The Nifty 50 index fell 28.70 points or 0.26% at 11,073.45. The Nifty declined 2.01% in three sessions.

    The market breadth was negative. On the BSE, 1220 shares rose and 1438 shares fell. A total of 177 shares were unchanged.

    COVID-19 Update:

    Total COVID-19 confirmed cases worldwide stood at 1,73,03,253 with 6,73,284 deaths. India reported 5,45,318 active cases of COVID-19 infection and 35,747 deaths while 10,57,805 patients have been discharged, according to the data from the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India.

    Numbers to Track:

    Global Markets:

    European markets were mixed while Asian markets ended mildly lower following a record contraction in US gross domestic in the second quarter.

    Investors cautiously await the outcome of Euro Zone GDP figures. In France, the statistics office said GDP fell by 13.8% in the second quarter of the year. On Thursday, the German statistics office announced the German economy contracted by 10.1% in the second quarter.

    China's official manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index for July came in above expectations on Friday. The manufacturing PMI for July was at 51.1 from June's 50.9, according to the country's National Bureau of Statistics.

    Japan's industrial output snapped four months of decline in June. Official data released on Friday showed factory output increased 2.7% in June from the previous month when it hit its lowest level since March 2009 during the financial crisis.

    US stock futures rose after some of the biggest tech stocks - Facebook, Amazon, Alphabet and Apple - reported quarterly results that beat expectations. Apple also announced a 4-for-1 stock split.

    The S&P 500 and Dow closed lower on Thursday after data painted a worrying economic picture on a crucial day for corporate earnings reports. The Nasdaq eked out a positive finish as investors braced for a litany of quarterly results from behemoths of the technology and e-commerce world.

    A first reading on US gross domestic product data for the second quarter confirmed the pandemic pummeled the economy. US GDP collapsed at a 32.9% annualized rate during the second quarter, following a 5% slump in the first quarter. The US economy shrank by its sharpest contraction since the second world war. More depressing signs emerged of the coronavirus pandemic's heavy toll on the country's economy. The record-setting quarterly fall in economic growth came as another 1.43 million Americans filed for unemployment benefits last week.

    Investors also worried about the expiration of enhanced employment benefits on Friday as US Congress was no closer to a deal on Thursday to extend or replace the extra $600-per-week in payments to tens of millions thrown out of work by the coronavirus.
