Indian Stock Market News, Equity Market and Sensex Today in India

In a day of extreme volatility, Indian share markets ended right where they started, near the day’s low.

After opening the day lower tracking weak global cues, Indian share markets regained momentum in the afternoon session and saw marginal gains. However, markets slipped towards the day’s low as banking and metal stocks came under pressure.

Indices tumbled towards the end to join their Asian peers to close in the red after a wobbly day ended with mixed results on Wall Street as markets churn over the prospect of a probable recession.

At the closing bell, the BSE Sensex stood lower by 509 points (down 0.9%).

Meanwhile, the NSE Nifty closed down by 149 points (down 0.9%).

Asian Paints, Sun Pharma, and Dr Reddy’s Laboratories were among the top gainers today.

Hindalco, JSW Steel, and ITC, on the other hand, were among the top losers today.

The SGX Nifty was trading at 16,881, lower by 157 points, at the time of writing.
