INDIAN BENCHMARKS: SENSEX NIFTY ENDS AT 21 MONTHS LOW
Domestic equity benchmarks tumbled to hit new 52-week lows tracking weak global trends and a fresh slump in crude oil prices before paring some of the losses in the afternoon session, taking cues from a strong opening in European markets.
Earlier both the equity benchmarks bled in morning trade. Nifty50, Sensex and Nifty Bank all hit their fresh 52-week lows, with Nifty50 hitting the lowest level since May 30, 2014, down 20 per cent from its all-time high point of 9,119.20. A 20 % fall in the index from its recent peak signifies the onset of a bear phase. However, to confirm the same, the index has to spend some time at this level.
Coal India (up 1.57 per cent), L&T (up 0.73 per cent), Maruti (up 0.72 per cent), Reliance Industries (up 0.61 per cent) and Infosys (up 0.08 per cent) provided support to benchmark index. Tata Motors (down 6.04 per cent), SBI (down 4.82 per cent), Adani Ports (down 3.57 per cent), HDFC (down 3.24 per cent) and Cipla (down 3.17 per cent) were the biggest losers in the Sensex.
