The BSE Sensex continued to trade volatile ahead of April expiry session on Thursday. Shares of Wipro, Infosys, TCS and ICICI Bank weighed on the market while Bharti, Reliance Industries, L&T and State Bank of India were supporting the market.

The BSE benchmark was down 22.43 points to 17,184.86 and the NSE benchmark fell 6 points to 5,216.85.

The Nifty has been capped in a very narrow band of about 5,160 to 5,320, says Gaurav Doshi, VP-PMS of Morgan Stanley PWM. “While the Nifty continues to trade in a small band, we think a move above 5,320 will potentially take the Nifty higher to 5,550 or a break below 5,180 will take us down to the 5,050 levels,” he warns.

Wipro tanked nearly 8% post company's muted guidance for Q1FY13. India's third largest software company by market cap said its net profit for the January-March quarter went up 1.7% QoQ to Rs 1,481 crore while revenues fell 0.45% to Rs 9,836 crore. However, company said its IT services revenues would be around USD 1.52-1.55 billion for April-June quarter, which is just 0.6% higher than Q4FY12. Top IT companies TCS and Infosys were down over 1%.

Private sector lender ICICI Bank was down 0.56% while rivals State Bank of India and HDFC Bank gained 0.2% and 0.9%, respectively.

State-owned BHEL and NTPC dropped 0.75% each.

However, shares of top telecom operator Bharti Airtel topped the buying list, rising over 2% after falling sharply in previous two sessions on TRAI recommendations.

Auto stocks like Bajaj Auto, Hero Motocorp and Maruti Suzuki gained over 1% whereas Tata Motors was up just 0.4%.
