Weaker macro-data results in Sensex shedding 170 points, NSE Nifty down by 40 points

Weaker macro-data resulted in a tepid response on D-street. The BSE Sensex ended Wednesday 174.95 points in the red at 33053.04, while the NSE Nifty ended 47.20 points or 0.46% in the red at 10192.95. Weak macro-economic data, released by the government, was one of the reasons for a slack in the trade on Wednesday.



On Tuesday, government released macro-economic data in post-market hours that showed November' inflation rise by a 15 month high of 4.88%, far above the RBI median average of 4 percent. October' industrial outlook growth decelerated to 2.2%, a 3 month low.

On the thirty scrip sensitive index- BSE Sensex, only five stocks were trading in the positive. Kotak Bank (up by 1.43%), TCS (0.68%), ONGC (0.44%), Dr Reddy (0.23%), and Hindustan Unilever (0.12%) were the stocks in positive. Cipla (down by 2.13%), and Adani Ports (1.97%) were the top losers in the trade.
