All that happened in Friday's trade

MARKETS LIVE: GDP, Q2 GDP, Nifty, Sensex, Core Sector data, Asian markets

Jayant Manglik, President Retail Sales, Religare Securities   The benchmark indices pared early gains and witnessed continued selling pressure for the third straight consecutive session. India’s Q2 GDP data came in line with market expectations, but it failed to lift the market amid fiscal deficit and rising crude prices concerns. The broader market indices also reacted in line with the frontline index. All the major sectoral indices ended in red with metal, oil&gas, consumer durables and auto being the top losers.   In the near term, market may remain volatile given RBI policy next week and US Fed meet in the second week of December. With steady reform implementation and improved corporate earnings, India would continue to remain a preferred investment destination for FIIs and DIIs despite its premium valuations compared to other emerging markets. However, we advise traders to avoid overleveraging and keep their positions hedged until the outcome of RBI policy.

This is one message policy makers cannot ignore while they interpret the economic growth numbers for July-September 2017, released by the Central Statistics Office on Thursday. READ FULL ANALYSIS Top five Nifty losers in last leg of trade Source: NSE

In a volatile trading session, the benchmark indices ended lower with the Nifty50 settling the first day of December expiry below 10,150 as economic growth data came in largely as expected, failing to boost a market weighed down by concerns about the country’s fiscal deficit and global risk factors such as rising crude prices.

Data late on Thursday showed India’s gross domestic product grew 6.3% in July-September, in line with expectations, as businesses started to overcome troubles after the bumpy launch of Goods and Services Tax (GST).

The data failed to lift sentiment as country's fiscal deficit reached 96% of the budgeted target for the fiscal year ending in March 2018, sending shares sharply lower on Thursday.

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) is meeting next week at a time of rising concern about a rally in crude prices, which rose following OPEC’s decision to extend production curbs. 

Overseas, European were trading lower, while also ended in negative zone as investors awaited the US Senate’s vote on tax reform legislation.
