  • Sensex tumbles 360 pts; Nifty below 11,400

    Key benchmarks tumbled on Tuesday amid selling in banks and financial stocks. The euphoria over the recent corporate tax cut was overshadowed by deepening woes in the financial sector. Crisis at Punjab and Maharashtra Co-operative Bank (PMC) and fraud allegations against Indiabulls Housing Finance (IHFL) spoiled investors' risk appetite.

    The barometer index, the S&P BSE Sensex, fell 361.92 points or 0.94% to 38,305.41. The Nifty 50 index fell 114.55 points or 1% to 11,359.90.

    The market breadth was weak. On the BSE, 687 shares rose and 1796 shares fell. A total of 146 shares remain unchanged.

    The S&P BSE Small-Cap index fell 1.61%. The S&P BSE Mid-Cap index fell 1.54%.

    The Nifty opened higher, but soon reversed gains and broke the crucial 11,500 level in morning trade. The 50-unit index staged a recovery in mid-morning trade and regained the 11,500-mark. Fresh selling pressure in afternoon session dragged the Nifty below 11,300 level. The index received a support at its 200-day simple moving average (DMA) placed at 11,254.89. Buying in the final hour of the trade pushed the index above 11,350 level. The Nifty, however, failed to cross its 100 DMA placed at 11,407.23.

    The Sensex is down 1.76% while the Nifty has fallen 1.83% in three consecutive trading sessions.

The CAD contracted on a year-on-year (y-o-y) basis, primarily on account of higher invisible receipts at $31.9 billion as compared with $29.9 billion a year ago.

    The fiscal deficit of central government declined 6.3% to Rs 553840 crore in April-August 2019-20 over April-August 2018-19. The fiscal deficit as a percentage of full year estimate stood at 78.7% in April-August 2019-20 compared with 94.7% touched in the corresponding period of last year.

Final new orders came in at 43.4, again better than the flash estimate but also the lowest since October 2012. Germany led the bloc's weakness, its PMI coming in at 41.7.

    US stocks rose on Monday, helped by gains in Apple, Microsoft and Merck & Co, as investors set aside worries about the US-China trade war.
