LIVE market updates: After ruling higher for better part of the day, domestic equities witnessed sharp profit booking in the fag end of the session as European stocks slipped in early trade and US stock futures hinted at a muted start on later today.

Concerns about the fast-spreading Delta variant and regulatory actions in China dragged the pan-European STOXX 600 index down 0.5 per cent while Dow Jones Futures were quoting 100 points, or 0.3 per cent, lower. Nasdaq Future, meanwhile, tumbled 1.1 per cent and those linked to S&P500 declined 0.6 per cent. Earlier in Asia, Nikkei skidded 2 per cent, and Kospi and Hang Seng erased over 1 per cent each.

Against this backdrop, the frontline gyrated 376 points in intra-day trade and ended 66 points, or 0.13 per cent, lower at 52,587 levels dragged by Bajaj Finance (down 2.5 per cent), Bajaj Finance, SBI, Tata Steel, Titan, Asian Paints, Axis Bank, IndusInd Bank, and Nestle India. 

It's NSE counterpart, Nifty50, shut shop at 15,763 levels, down 15 points or 0.1 per cent. The broader markets, however, outperformed with the BSE MidCap and SmallCap indices zooming 0.52 per cent an 0.69 per cent, respectively.
