  • Sensex tanks 938 pts, Nifty ends below 14,000 mark on broader selloff

    Domestic shares tumbled sharply on Wednesday on across the board selling pressure. Barring the Nifty FMCG index, all the sectoral indices on the NSE declined. Banks and financial shares tumbled.

    The barometer index, the S&P BSE Sensex, tumbled 937.66 points or 1.94% to 47,409.93. The Nifty 50 index lost 271.40 points or 1.91% to 13,967.50.

    HDFC Bank (down 3.60%), HDFC (down 3.33%), Reliance Industries (down 2.29%) and ICICI Bank (down 2.94%) were major drags.

    In the broader market, the BSE Mid-Cap index fell 1.38% and the BSE Small-Cap index slipped 0.52%.

    Sellers outnumbered buyers. On the BSE, 1066 shares rose and 1847 shares fell. A total of 151 shares were unchanged.

    Investor sentiment was dented after the new coronavirus variant resulted in fresh lockdowns and other restrictions on movement in certain counties across the globe. Domestic shares were also under pressure ahead of monthly derivatives expiry on Thursday and the upcoming Union Budget.


    Total COVID-19 confirmed cases worldwide stood at 10,02,70,602 with 21,57,355 deaths. India reported 1,76,498 active cases of COVID-19 infection and 1,53,724 deaths while 1,03,59,305 patients have been discharged, according to the data from the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India.

    A total of 20,29,424 beneficiaries have so far been vaccinated for COVID-19 through 36,572 sessions held till the evening of 26 January 2021, the eleventh day of the immunisation drive, according to a provisional report of the Union Health Ministry.


    The International Monetary Fund (IMF) on Tuesday raised its forecast for global economic growth in 2021 and said the coronavirus-triggered downturn in 2020 would be almost a full percentage point less severe than expected. It said multiple vaccine approvals and the unveiling of vaccinations in some countries in December had boosted hopes of an eventual end to the pandemic.

    IMF projected an impressive 11.5% growth rate for India in 2021, making the country the only major economy of the world to register a double-digit growth this year amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

    The IMF's growth projections for India in its latest World Economic Outlook Update released on Tuesday reflected a strong rebound in the economy, which is estimated to have contracted by 8% in 2020 due to the pandemic.

    India's economy, the IMF said, is projected to grow by 6.8% in 2022 and that of China by 5.6%. With the latest projections, India regains the tag of the fastest developing economies of the world.

    Numbers to Watch:

    The yield on 10-year benchmark federal paper rose to 5.955% as compared with 5.954% at close in the previous trading session.

    In the foreign exchange market, the rupee edged higher against the dollar. The partially convertible rupee was hovering at 72.9250, compared with its close of 72.94 during the previous trading session.

    In the commodities market, Brent crude for March 2021 settlement rose 30 cents at $56.21 a barrel. The contract rose 3 cents, or 0.05% to settle at $55.91 a barrel in the previous trading session.

    Foreign Markets:

    The US Dow Jones index futures were down 269 points, indicating a weak opening in US stocks today.

    European shares were trading lower while Asian shares ended mixed on Wednesday, amid the uncertainty surrounding the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

    In US, the S&P and Nasdaq slipped on Tuesday from record closing levels as investors digested a batch of corporate earnings results, while an expected policy announcement from the Federal Reserve on Wednesday helped to limit moves.

    The Biden administration signaled Tuesday that it could be open to tweaking eligibility for future stimulus checks. President Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion proposal calls for $1,400 direct deposits, but the plan has drawn critiques from a bipartisan group of lawmakers because of its lofty price tag.

    Investors were also waiting for a new policy statement from the Federal Reserve as the central bank began its two-day meeting on Tuesday. Former Fed Chair Janet Yellen was confirmed as Treasury secretary, becoming the first woman to hold the position.

    On the coronavirus front, Moderna said on Monday that its vaccine does provide some protection against a variant found in South Africa, while officials in Minnesota reported the first U.S. confirmed case of a strain found in Brazil.
