Market extends losses; PSU banks tumble
(06 Dec 2019, 13:47)

Key equity benchmarks extended losses and hit fresh intraday low in afternoon trade. At 13:45 IST, the barometer index, the S&P BSE Sensex fell 193.41 points or 0.47% at 40,586.18. The Nifty 50 index fell 57.95 points or 0.48% at 11,960.45.

Selling was broad based. The S&P BSE Mid-Cap index was down 0.97%. The S&P BSE Small-Cap index fell 0.58%.

The market breadth was weak. On the BSE, shares 806 rose and 1,374 shares fell. A total of 137 shares were unchanged.

The sentiment was subdued after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) unexpectedly left interest rates unchanged on Thursday. In a surprise move, the RBI decided to hold the rates after delivering five consecutive rate cuts in 2019. The move was driven by the rising inflationary pressure and gradual improvement in monetary transmission.

RBI revised GDP growth downwards to 5% for 2019-20 from 6.1% projected in its October policy. The CPI inflation projection has also been revised upwards to 4.7-5.1% for the second half of FY20 and 3.8-4% for the first half of FY21.

Meanwhile, RBI's consumer confidence survey (CCS) released on Thursday reported a further drop in consumer confidence in November as households remained pessimistic about jobs and the general economic situation. The current situation index (CSI) dropped to 85.7 last month from 89.4 in September. The future expectations index (FEI) also fell to 114.5, down from 118 in September.

Consumers' sentiments on the general economic situation and the employment scenario weakened, but their one-year ahead expectations remained in the optimistic terrain for all parameters, except prices; expectations on income one-year ahead improved marginally over the previous survey round, said the RBI survey.


The NSE's India VIX, a gauge of market's expectation of volatility over the near term, fell 6.41% to 13.3875. The Nifty December 2019 futures were trading at 12,013, a premium of 42.4 points compared with the spot at 11,970.60.

On the options front, the Nifty option chain for 26 December 2019 expiry showed maximum call open interest (OI) of 20.31 lakh contracts at the 12,000 strike price. Maximum put OI of 33.57 lakh contracts was seen at 12,000 strike price.

The option chain indicates that Nifty will stay at 12,000 level till December expiry, 26 December 2019.
