  • Equity indices close in red on weak global cues

The Nifty50 closed higher by 20.65 points or 0.20 per cent at 10,584.70 points, while the Sensex closed at 34,450.77 points - up 35.19 points or 0.10 per cent. The stock was once again the highlight of the Street as the IT major's shares surged as much as 4 per cent in intra-day trade, making it the first company to breach the $100 billion market capitalisation milestone.

The benchmark BSE Sensex was down 52 points or 0.15 percent at 34,363, while the broader Nifty index was down 5 points at 10,559.

This is published unedited from the PTI feed. Among sectoral sub-indices, Nifty IT gained more than a per cent. By end of the say however, the stock finished with 0.26 per cent gain.

Global markets were weak today as a rise in United States bond yields to 3 per cent and warnings from bellwether United States companies of higher costs drove fears that corporate earnings growth may peak soon.

Japan's Nikkei added 0.9 percent as a lower yen supported export-heavy firms.




Market breadth was negative with 1,080 advances against 1,341 declines. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note climbed, settling just below the 3 per cent level. Chinese shares climbed 1.9 percent, while Hong Kong's Hang Seng index rose 1 percent. China's Shanghai Composite index too was down 0.59 per cent.

Meanwhile, European markets began lower as investors took cues from corporate earnings while also keeping an eye on geopolitics and crude oil prices.

The major Sensex gainers on Tuesday were: RIL, up 3.70 per cent at Rs 969.75; Yes Bank, up 3.31 per cent at Rs 323.40; M&M, up 1.94 per cent at Rs 838.45; Adani Ports, up 1.74 per cent at Rs 391.95; and ICICI Bank, up 1.66 per cent at Rs 284.20.

On a net basis, domestic institutional investors had bought shares worth a net Rs 111.01 crore, while foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) sold shares worth a net Rs 21.02 crore on Friday.
