Good Evening ,
The benchmark indices started off trade on a flat note on the back of weak global cues. After trading flat in red for most part of the session, the bourses finally ended the trade near day’s low. The Sensex ended at 18673, down 79 points while the Nifty shut at 5670, down 22 points. The trading sentiments also seemed cautious ahead of the September series F&O expiry. Sectorally, the indices closed mixed. While Power, Realty and Capital Goods led with gains of over one percent, Oil & Gas and FMCG closed with over one percent loss. The market breadth was positive and three stocks were seen advancing against every two declines.
