The stock market of India trade cautions and range-bound after four successive days of heavy selloff triggered by the FIIs. The BSE Sensex lost 16 points and closed at 37,830 levels while the Nifty-50 index ticked 19 points down and closed at 11,252. Bank Nifty index scaled 90 points and closed at 29,043 regaining the psychological 29,000 levels. Dr. Lal Pathlabs, Shriram Transport Finance, Reliance Infrastructure and Bandhan Bank stocks were the top gaining stocks today while Future Consumer, GE T&D India, Navkar Corporation, CARE Ratings and Tube Investments were among the top losing stocks in the intraday trade.
Speaking on the current market sentiments Prakash Pandey, Head of Research at Fairwealth Securities said, "The recent tank is caused by the FIIs heavy selloff as the budget surcharge being levied on the FPIs hasn't gone down well among them. But, the Indian Government has already made it clear that they are not going to bow down at the FIIs pressure tactics as the step has been taken to ensure the safety of the domestic small investors in the stock market. So, if the government continues with its stand for coming 8-10 trading sessions, then we can further witness some downside and Nifty 50 index may show 10,750 in coming four to five trading sessions."
