The decline came on the back of a sharp fall in NBFC stocks. DHFL skidded over 50% in intraday trade on fears of a liquidity crisis. The management, however, assuaged investor concerns and said the company has not defaulted on any repayments. The stock settled 42 per cent lower at Rs 352 on the BSE. According to the analysts, the IL&FS crisis was the main reason behind the selloff. That apart, a rise in bond yields also weighed on the sentiment. READ MORE HERE

MARKET WRAP: Sensex ends 280 pts lower after a 1500-pt fall; DHFL tanks 42%

MARKET COMMENT Mustafa Nadeem, CEO, Epic Research Nifty and Sensex were down due to widespread selling that was seen in the Financial services sector as credit risk emerged post-ILFS firesale and concern over its interest repayment. Yes bank added fuel as RBI trimmed the CEO's term while pointing to its loan book quality and NPA discrepancies.  We previously mentioned as well the importance of 11550 being not breached and for Nifty to reclaim its bullish trend it was very much necessary and below that we continue to maintain sell on advances as a strategy. That level is now placed at 11300 and we expect Nifty to continue its downtrend for lower targets of 10600 - 10700

MARKET WRAP: Sensex ends 280 pts lower after a 1500-pt fall; DHFL tanks 42%

MARKET COMMENT Jayant Manglik, President, Religare Broking Nifty witnessed violent swings and ended half a percent lower in the end. The beginning was upbeat, tracking firm global cues but the rumours of debt crisis in NBFC sector triggered panic selling across the board, especially in banking and housing finance stocks. Though the benchmark index managed to recoup losses significantly in the latter half, situation remained bleak on broader front.   We usually see such volatile moves prior to the market bottom or top but it's too early to confirm the same. We believe the coming week would begin in some clarity. Traders should restrict leveraged positions in the meanwhile and prefer only hedged trades. Investors, on the other hand, can start accumulating fundamentally sound counters on dips with medium to long term view
