Nifty slips below key 10,500-mark, down 106 points
The NSE Nifty today shed 106 points to close at 10,430, hit by losses in sectors like metal, energy, realty and private banks amid continued foreign fund outflows and rising concerns over global crude oil prices.
Besides, weaker rupee as well as tepid global cues weighed on the investors' sentiment.
In the overseas markets, European shares dropped as crude prices weighed on energy companies. Asian shares too slipped after US President Donald Trump said he was not satisfied with bilateral trade talks with China that occurred last week.
