A volatile Wednesday on D-Street! The index started off the day on a positive now but felt selling pressure at higher levels. The S&P BSE Sensex plunged nearly 300 points while the Nifty50 saw a dip of nearly 100 points.

The RBI policy stance is clearly pro-growth. The measures taken to increase flows to NBFCs are credit positive and will enhance lending, suggest experts but concerns over the health of the economy and the extent of further rate cut dented sentiment.


The RBI’s rate cut and dovish stance indicate an unambiguous focus on growth and a high priority for boosting consumption, said, experts. The RBI has also cut real GDP growth estimates for FY20 from 7% to 6.9%.

Rate-sensitive stocks pared gains and turned negative towards the close of the trade. The S&P BSE Auto index fell 2.1 percent, followed by the S&P BSE Bankex which was down by over 1 percent. The Consumer Discretionary index was down 0.8 percent even as pharma and IT bucked the trend.

The rupee dropped 8 paise to finish at 70.89 against the US dollar on August 7 after the RBI cut the key interest rate and lowered the growth estimate for the current fiscal.

On the institutional front, FPIs were net sellers in Indian markets for Rs 383 cr while the DIIs were net buyers to the tune of Rs 531 cr, provisional data showed.
