Sensex and Nifty fell on Monday in line with Asian markets which responded on poor Chinese trade data and an extended partial US government shutdown, fuelling concerns of a global growth slowdown.
Except for the export-oriented IT sectors on the BSE, which gained as the rupee weakened close to 30 paise, all other sectorial stocks witnessed heavy selling pressure.
The rupee weakened to 70.79 per dollar, around the closing bell against the previous close of 70.49.
Index-wise, the Nifty50 declined by 57.35 points or 0.53 per cent to settle at 10,737.60.
It had opened at 36,113.27 points and touched an intra-day high of 36,124.94 and a low of 35,691.75.
Stock-wise, Yes Bank was a top gainer, jumping close to 6 per cent.
