Mumbai, Dec 5: Heavy selling pressure in metals and interest sensitive stocks such as banking, auto and capital goods — dragged the key indices of Indian equity markets during Tuesday’s early morning trade session.
At 9.30 a.m., the broader Nifty 50 of the National Stock Exchange (NSE) was trading lower by 32.60 points or 0.32 per cent at 10,095.15 points.
The barometer 30-scrip Sensitive Index (Sensex) of the BSE, which opened at 32,814.03 points, traded at 32,731.50 points — down 138.22 points or 0.42 per cent — from Monday’s close.
The Sensex reached 32,830.91 points and a low of 32,731.21 during the intra-day trade so far.
The BSE market breadth was also clumsy because only 518 stocks advanced against a decline of 1,148 scrips.
