MARKET WRAP

BS Web Team  |  New Delhi 

The domestic stock market fell sharply on Monday amid a broad-based sell-off after the government said the Chinese troops 'carried out provocative military movements in Eastern Ladakh to change the status quo' but they were blocked by Indian soldiers. The incidents took place in between August 29-30 night.

Further, nervousness around Q1 GDP numbers, which is slated to be released later in the day, and Sebi's new margin norms, too, dragged the market lower.

The S&P BSE Sensex declined 839 points or 2.13 per cent to settle at 38,628 levels. Of 30 constituents, 28 declined and just 2 advanced. Reliance Industries (RIL) was the biggest contributor to the index's loss, followed by ICICI Bank, and HDFC.

NSE's Nifty settled at 11,387.50, down 260 points or 2.23 per cent. India VIX jumped over 24 per cent to 22.84 levels.

All the sectoral indices on the NSE ended in the red. Nifty Bank slumped over 750 points, or 3 per cent to 23,754.35 levels, with all the 12 constituents declining. Nifty PSU Bank index slipped nearly 5 per cent to 1,525 levels.

The broader market fared worse than the headline indices. The S&P BSE SmallCap index plunged over 4 per cent to 14,336 levels while the S&P BSE MidCap index settled at 14,661, up 3.8 per cent.
