A black Monday! Indian markets which were already reeling under the pressure of global cues saw a knee jerk react after the government revoked Article 370 to take away Jammu and Kashmir's special status.

The border state will be bifurcated. Jammu and Kashmir will be a Union Territory with a legislature, while Ladakh region will be a union territory but without an assembly, home minister Amit Shah told the Rajya Sabha in the morning.


The index hit a record high of 12,103 in June and has since shed more than 1,200 points, or little over 10 percent, to touch 10,862 on August 5.

More than 500 BSE stocks hit a fresh 52-week low. These included Indian Bank, Future Consumer, V Mart Retail, YES Bank, Tata Motors (DVR), Tata Motors, Fortis Health, JSPL, Wockhardt, Tata Steel, Hindalco Industries, GAIL India, Bank of India, Motherson Sumi, Escorts and ITC.

The rupee on August 5 crashed by 113 paise -- the biggest single-day drop in the past six years -- to close at a five-month low of 70.73 due to heavy capital outflows by investors anxious over the US-China trade tension, a sharp devaluation in yuan and uncertainty over Kashmir issue.

On the institutional front, FPIs were net sellers in Indian markets for Rs 2016 cr while the DIIs were net buyers to the tune of Rs 1871 cr, provisional data showed.

Big News:

As many as 104 companies will declare their results for the June quarter which include names like Aditya Birla Fashion, Arvind, BASF India, Central Bank of India, Fortis Healthcare, Indiabulls Housing Finance, JSW Energy, Pidilite Industries, REC, Thomas Cook, Titan Company etc. among others.
