On Tuesday, benchmark indices fell for the third straight day, joining the global sell-off due to rising virus concerns. Barring select FMCG counters, all sectors fell led by banks and metals.
The 30-share pack Sensex declined 354.89 points or 0.68 per cent to close at 52,198.51. Its broader peer NSE Nifty dipped 120.30 points or 0.76 per cent to 15,632.10.
“Sharp fall in crude price & US bond yields reflected the rising concern over fall in future growth. Vulnerability from premium valuations, upcoming FOMC meeting and selling by foreign investors exposed the Indian market,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.
