Sensex falls 355 points, Nifty gives up 15,650; Sensex and Nifty tumbled for the second straight session today as concerns over growing cases of Delta variant of Covid -19 in UK, US and most parts of Asia impacted global markets.

On an intra day basis, Sensex fell 540 points to 52,013 and Nifty lost 174 points to 15,578. IndusInd Bank was the top Sensex loser, shedding over 3 per cent, followed by Tata Steel, NTPC, Bharti Airtel, HCL Tech, ICICI Bank, M&M and HDFC Bank.

Sensex falls 355 points, Nifty gives up 15,650; On the other hand, Asian Paints rallied over 6 per cent after its Q1 earnings. UltraTech Cement, Bajaj Auto, HUL and Nestle India were among other Sensex gainers rising up to 1.52%. Of 30 Sensex stocks, 21 closed in the red.

Shrikant Chouhan, Executive Vice-President, Equity Technical Research at Kotak Securities said, “Technically, market closed above the 15,600/52,100 level, we believe the pain is not over and the Nifty/Sensex would move to the 15,450/51,600 or 15,300/51,000 levels in the next few days.

On the upside, 15680/52350 and 15750/52500 levels would be major obstacles. India VIX has grown the most since May 2021 at 15%. Bank Nifty broke support at the 34,600 level, pushing the index to the 33,900 level. Until the market crosses the 15,750/52,500 level and closes at the 15,750/52,500, the strategy should be to reduce the weak long positions.”

Other major sectoral losers were metal and capital goods shares whose BSE indices lost 460 points and 340 points, respectively.

All 19 BSE sectoral indices closed in the red. Market cap of BSE-listed firms fell to Rs 231.01 lakh crore against previous close of Rs 233.21 lakh crore. Market breadth was negative with 1,137 shares rising against 2,098 stocks falling on BSE. 108 shares were unchanged.
