Domestic equity indices gyrated between gains and losses all through Tuesday before taking a plunge towards the end of the session, as metals, banking and energy stocks dragged the benchmark indices sharply lower.A dovish money policy from the Reserve Bank of India, which held the policy rates, didn't help much.
European markets opened weak in the afternoon amid global growth concerns and a fresh slump in crude oil prices, causing the maximum damage to the domestic equity benchmarks, which slumped 1.15 per cent amid brisk selling in 27 of the 30 Sensex stocks.
Tata Steel (down 7.18 per cent), Sun Pharma -4.12 % (down 3.53 per cent), NTPC -4.28 % (down 4.28 per cent), BHEL -3.99 % (down 4.13 per cent), Cipla (down 3.60 per cent), ONGC (down 3.60 per cent), Adani Ports (down 3.42 per cent), RIL (down 2.54 per cent), Coal India (down 3.23 per cent) and ICICI Bank (down 3.02 per cent) all bled.Only Bharti Airtel (up 2.06 per cent), Bajaj Auto 1.48 % (up 1.48 per cent) and Infosys (up 0.30 per cent) managed to keep their heads above water.
