Sensex Ends 770 Pts Lower, Nifty50 Gives Up 17,600; Hdfc Falls 3%, Itc Up 1%


Stock Market Highlights

: Indian equity benchmarks Sensex and Nifty50 halted a three-day winning streak on Thursday, retreating from two-week closing highs registered in the previous session, as the bulls on Dalal Street took a breather. Losses in IT, financial and oil & gas shares pulled the headline indices lower, though gains in auto shares lent some support. Broader markets also weakened, with the Nifty Midcap 100 index dropping one percent, and its smallcap counterpart 0.3 percent. Investors awaited more of quarterly financial reports from India Inc for cues. ITC shares ended 1.1 percent higher ahead of the conglomerate’s Q3 numbers.
