  • Sensex, Nifty hit one-week closing low

    Domestic stocks suffered severe setback led by slide in Reliance Industries, State Bank of India and Lupin. The barometer index, the S&P BSE Sensex, lost 360.43 points or 1.07% to settle at 33,370.76. The Nifty 50 index lost 101.65 points or 0.97% to settle at 10,350.15. The Sensex retreated after scaling record high in intraday trade to settle at one-week low. The Nifty also ended at its lowest level in one week. Rising crude oil prices and weakening rupee spoiled investors sentiment.

    India imports majority of its crude requirements and a rise in crude oil prices increases concerns on fiscal deficit, inflation and gives lesser room for the government to boost growth through spending on infrastructure. A weak rupee raises the cost of importing crude oil.

    Indices opened higher on positive global cues. Trading turned volatile as key indices hit fresh intraday low in mid-morning trade, sharply reversing trend after hitting fresh intraday high in early trade. The Sensex reversed trend in morning trade after hitting record high level in early trade. Buying soon emerged at lower levels, helping key indices pare losses after hitting fresh intraday low in mid-morning trade. Key benchmark indices hovered in negative terrain in early afternoon trade. Recovery proved short lived as fresh selling dragged the key indices to fresh intraday low in afternoon trade. Stocks continued to trade with weakness in late trade.

    The Nifty 50 index lost 101.65 points or 0.97% to settle at 10,350.15, its lowest closing level since 31 October 2017. The Nifty rose 33.95 points, or 0.32% at the day's high of 10,485.75 in early trade.
