A day before the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) releases its monetary policy announcement, the Indian equity market ended down in the previous session, interrupting a six-day winning streak. The Nifty was down 6.20 points or 0.04 percent at 17,382 at the close, and the Sensex was down 51.73 points or 0.09 percent at 58,298.80.
According to Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services, “taking good momentum from the robust US economic statistics, the domestic market opened with gains, although worries over the US-China rivalry kept investors on the defensive, leading to severe volatility.”
The Indian rupee and equity market were under downward pressure as a result of the trade deficit report and the weak PMI. But persistent foreign interest in Indian stocks encourages investors to buy on price declines, which causes a late rebound,” he continued.
