Oil & gas, capital goods and technology are leading the losers. The global cues added to the woes with Europe opening in the red and trading lower.
Broader indices were also trading weak both midcap and small indices were down half a percent each.

With RBI’s move to hike interest rates by 25 bps with a flat global market scenario has made nifty nervous, breaking the 5400 mark. However, Ramesh Damani, member of BSE says that he sees no ‘sharp fall’ in the Indian markets. “The Market has already factored in the Greek default. There are no real signs of speculative froth in Indian markets,” says Damani. Defying to side with the collapse sentiment, Damani says, “I don’t see the Nifty going towards 4,800 levels.”
