Stock Market Today, Share Market Updates: The benchmark equity indices on the BSE and National Stock Exchange (NSE) fell for the third consecutive session, declining around 1 per cent on Tuesday ahead of the outcome of RBI’s monetary policy meeting on Wednesday.
The S&P BSE Sensex fell 567.98 points (1.02 per cent) to end at 55,107.34 while the Nifty 50 slipped 153.20 points (0.92 per cent) to settle at 16,416.35. Both the indices had opened nearly 1 per cent lower earlier in the day and traded almost in the same range throughout the session.
On the Sensex pack, Titan Company was the top loser on Tuesday, slipping nearly 4.5 per cent. It was followed by Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories, Hindustan Unilever (HUL), Larsen & Toubro (L&T), Asian Paints, Bajaj Finance, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Nestle India, Bajaj Finserv, Sun Pharmaceutical Industries, ICICI Bank and Infosys. In contrast, only NTPC, Maruti Suzuki India, Mahindra & Mahindra, Bharti Airtel and State Bank of India (SBI) ended in the green.
Among sectoral indices, Nifty Realty fell 1.67 per cent, Nifty Media declined 1.60 per cent, Nifty IT cracked 1.57 per cent and Nifty FMCG slipped 1.54 per cent.
In the broader market, the S&P BSE MidCap ended at 22,564.47, down 175.36 points (0.77 per cent) while the S&P BSE SmallCap settled at 26,065.30, down 175.14 points (0.67 per cent). The volatility index or India VIX on NSE rose 1.10 per cent to 20.4250.
“The volatility in the market is forcing investors to stay sidelined ahead of the RBI’s policy announcement. The market has factored a hike up to 50bps of repo rate & CRR, but any further stricter measures to clamp liquidity due to lingering inflation will have ramifications on the market trend. Apart from the monetary measures, the RBI’s guidance on growth and inflation forecast will determine the market trend,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.
