Markets continue to trade in the red in the noon deals on the back of selling in HDFC Group, ITC and software majors like TCS and Wipro.

At 1415 hrs, the Sensex was down 72 points at 19,245 and the Nifty lost 21 points at 5,858.

Meanwhile, the broader markets continued to attract buyers and the midcap and the smallcap indices gained 0.5% each.
 
In Asian markets, except Nikkei and Shanghai Composite, all the other markets were in the red.

Japan's Nikkei average climbed to an 8-1/2-month high on Monday and a technical chart showed the rally may last, as the yen weakened after the conservative Liberal Democratic Party won a landslide election, calling for aggressive monetary easing. The Nikkei rose 0.9% to 9,828.88, the highest closing level since April 3, while the yen hit a 20-month low of 84.48 yen to the dollar, boosting the appeal of exporters' shares.

China shares rose as investors were encouraged by more signs of reforms to come, and a strong move higher last week put the onshore markets on course to show their first yearly gain since 2009. The index gained 0.4% at 2,160.

In Europe, CAC and FTSE were in the red, down 0.6% and 0.3% respectively while DAX was up 0.2%.

Among the sectoral indices, Metal, Auto, PSU, Power, Realty and Health Care up 0.2-1% were the only ones in the positive. Among the ones in the negative were IT, Consumer Durables, FMCG, Capital Goods and Oil & gas indices losing 0.1-1%.

The movers among the Sensex-30 were metal names like Hindalco, Sterlite and Jindal Steel up 2% each followed by Maruti Suzuki, NTPC, Tata Power, Mahindra & Mahindra and SBI adding 1% each.

The draggers were Bharti Airtel, TCS, HDFC Bank, BHEL, HDFC, Wipro and ITC down 1% each.

The market breadth was positive on the BSE owing to the strength in the broader markets. 1485 stocks advanced while 1282 stocks declined.
