INDIAN BENCHMARKS: SENSEX END MARGINALLY HIGHER,NIFTY FLAT
The domestic equity market on Wednesday failed to play catchup with the global equity rally seen over the past two days and turned sluggish, as investors booked profit following poor cues from China even as weak crude prices turned the sentiment negative.Weakness in Asian and European markets after two days of gains also weighed on investor sentiments.
Opening after a day's holiday break, the S&P BSE Sensex opened with a good 100-point rally while the NSE's Nifty50 started above the key resistance level of 7,900. But the benchmark indices embarked on a downward slide soon after and kept swinging between gains and losses all through the trading session.
The 30-share Sensex closed the day at 25,844.18, up 0.11 per cent or 27.82 points, while its 50-share counterpart gained 0 points or 0.05 per cent to end at 7,914.75.
