INDIAN BENCHMARKS: SENSEX ENDS 69 POINTS LOWER, NIFTY ABOVE 7850
The domestic equity market was left bruised in choppy trade on Wednesday following heightened fears of a rate hike by the US Federal Reserve post better-than-expected retail inflation in the US took its toll on investors' sentiment.
However, market's losses were capped as traders began buying on dips.
After a weak start which saw the index plummet close to 270 points, the 30-share barometer S&P BSE Sensex closed at 25,704.61, down 0.27 per cent or 69 points. The NSE barometer Nifty50 settled at 7,870.15, with a loss of 20.60 points or 0.26 per cent.
