Barometers trade lower; breadth turns strong

Capital Market 

The benchmark indices extended minor losses during morning trade. At 10:30 IST, the barometer index, the S&P BSE Sensex, skid 217.32 points or 0.37% at 58,248.57. The Nifty 50 index lost 37.10 points or 0.21% at 17,379.45.

The broader market recovered. The S&P BSE Mid-Cap index rose 0.95% while the S&P BSE Small-Cap index gained 0.94%.

The market breadth was strong. On the BSE, 2,038 shares rose and 939 shares fell. A total of 142 shares were unchanged.

The risk-off mood was triggered amid fresh COVID-19 cases in Europe and lockdowns in countries like Austria. The dollar index climbing over 96 mark also spooked investors. Repeal of farms laws by the government, falling of Reliance-Aramco deal and the weak listing of Paytm also dented investors sentiment. However, the decline in crude oil prices is a positive for India.


SBI Research has upgraded India's GDP growth projection for financial year 2022 to the range of 9.3%-9.6% from its earlier estimates of 8.5%-9%. The revised GDP estimate of SBI Research is in-line with RBI's projection of 9.5% GDP growth for the current fiscal year.

The projection comes as the country recorded only 11% increase in COVID-19 cases during the July-September quarter of 2021, second-lowest among the top 15 most affected countries

Mentioning reasons behind its revised estimates, SBI Research said that India remained unscathed in Quarter 3 from the global situation, which is marred by supply disruptions, stubborn inflation and surges of infections during Q3 2021.
