The market started off the day on a robust note but the end was pathetic on May 13 as the benchmark indices lost all its gains in the last hour of trade and closed with moderate losses weighed down by banking & financial services, metal and select technology stocks. The BSE Sensex lost nearly 1,000 points from day’s high to close with 137 points loss at 52,794, and the Nifty50 failed to hold on to psychological 16,000 mark, down 26 points at 15,782. Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking Ltd., said: “Global headwinds are currently weighing on the sentiment and the domestic factors are also not very encouraging. The fresh selling pressure in the banking pack is further adding to the negativity. We thus reiterate our negative view and suggest continuing with the “sell on the rise” approach. Since most sectors are reeling under pressure, participants should align their positions accordingly and avoid contrarian bets.”
Bharat Forge, MCX India, Ami Organics, Century Plyboards, Dodla Dairy, Fino Payments Bank, Glaxosmithkline Pharmaceuticals, Greenply Industries, GRM Overseas, Max Ventures and Industries, Nava Bharat Ventures, Omkar Speciality Chemicals, RateGain Travel Technologies, Raymond, Shankara Building Products, Uttam Sugar Mills, and VIP Industries will be in focus ahead of March quarter earnings on May 16.
