Today's session (20th Sept.2021) was kicked off on a gap-down note and the benchmark indices recouped some losses amid buying in FMCG and IT shares. The BSE Sensex was trading 140 points down at 58,870 level while Nifty50 reclaimed the 17,500 marks but was down 45 points.
Financials, private banks, and metal stocks were among the worst drags in the opening session.
The broader markets, too, declined, underperforming benchmarks. Both the BSE Midcap and Smallcap indices dropped over 1 percent.
In sectoral space, all indices, barring the Nifty FMCG pack, traded in the red. Nifty Metal tumbled the most, down 3 percent. Meanwhile, PSU Bank, Private Bank, Bank, and Auto indices too shed over 1 percent each.
