Written by Sanjay Kumar
After a volatile trading session last Friday (November 17), the Indian stock market closed lower with the Nifty 50 index losing 33 points and ending at 19,730 levels. The BSE Sensex went down by 187 points to close at 65,794, and the Nifty Bank index corrected 577 points to finish at 43,583 levels. Domestic Institutional Investors (DIIs) and Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs) both remained net sellers, with DIIs selling Indian stocks worth ₹565 crore and FIIs offloading shares worth ₹477 crore in the cash segment.
Siddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research at Motilal Oswal, noted, “Domestic equity saw a subdued session as selling in financial stocks offset the rally elicited by easing in US inflation and drop in crude oil prices. Nifty snapped its two days of gain and traded in a range to close with a loss of 33 points at 19732 levels. Sectorally, it was a mixed bag with buying seen in FMCG, Pharma, and Auto. Profit booking was seen in Banking stocks after RBI raised risk weights for unsecured loans.”
