Among individual stocks, Cipla hit a five-month low during the trade, extending its Monday’s 7 per cent decline on the BSE, due to a weak outlook for the second half of the current fiscal (H2FY19). The pharmaceutical major said there was pressure on the tender business, supply disruptions, commodity inflation and business impact from countries hit by sanctions. The stock ended at Rs 532 apiece on BSE, down nearly 6 per cent. PC Jeweller tanked 12 per cent to settle at Rs 83 levels. 

In the sectoral universe, PSU banks ended the day lower with the Nifty PSU Bank index slipping 2.23 per cent. FMCG stocks were the second biggest losers, followed by auto pack.

MARKET COMMENT Jayant Manglik, President, Religare Broking In a volatile trading session, the equity benchmark indices started on a positive note led by supportive global cues. However, it witnessed stiff resistance at higher levels and the index ended flat at 10,530 levels. The broader markets witnessed mixed trend. While BSE Midcap underperformed the benchmark ending lower by 0.6%, the Smallcap index ended on a flat note. On the sectoral indices front, Consumer Durables, Metals and Banking were the top losers whereas, sectors like IT and Realty ended the day in green. Amongst the global markets, Asian indices traded on a mixed note whereas European indices were trading lower.   While there have been some encouraging news for Indian equities with correction in crude oil prices and reversal in USD/INR, we remain cautiously optimistic in the near term given the headwinds which persist both on domestic as well on the global front. The liquidity concerns in the NBFC sector is likely to keep investors on the edge. On the global front, US midterm elections and US FOMC meet is also likely to be on market radar. Further, with more results to be announced in 1-2 weeks, we expect stock specific volatility to continue. Thus, we would advise maintaining stock specific trading approach and focus more on position management
