Indian markets witness a mixed reaction today-
Chart source- Upstox
Indian markets had a mixed reaction today. As you can see on the chart the Index had a GAP_UP opening today after which it started moving downwards. The index did try to break upwards but couldn’t breach the 10,900 mark. It tried to breach that mark thrice but was unsuccessful. It’s a rather somber end to the market on the last trading session of 2018. Mixed Asian and European cues kept the market in check. The Nifty ended 2018 below 10,900. Weakness was visible among index heavyweights, which dragged the indices. Meanwhile, among sectors, auto, metals and pharmaceuticals were all trading in the green. At the close of market hours, the Sensex was down 8.39 points or 0.02% at 36068.33, and the Nifty up 2.60 points or 0.02% at 10862.50. The market breadth was narrow as 1495 shares advanced, against a decline of 1095 shares, while 164 shares were unchanged. Tata Steel, Vedanta, and JSW Steel were the top gainers, while Hero MotoCorp, Axis Bank, Bharti Airtel and Bharti Infratel lost the most.
