Monday blues for D-Street! Yes, after falling over 1 percent in the week gone by, bears maintained their hold on D-Street and pushed Sensex and Nifty lower by another 1% on Monday.

Selling pressure continued as investors turned risk-averse due to the upcoming election. Quarter results have not surprised investors while the scope of a downgrade in earnings further dampened the sentiment.

Global trade deal and risk of a slowdown in growth continue to give caution while investors remain focused on macro data on Tuesday.

On the macro front, investors will keep an eye on CPI inflation and IIP data to get some direction.

The underperformance of broader markets clearly indicates a lack of appetite for risky bets.

The rupee strengthened by 13 paise to close at 71.18 against the dollar on Monday on easing crude oil prices even as the greenback strengthened vis-a-vis other major currencies.

On the institutional front, FPI and DIIs were net sellers in Indian markets to the tune of Rs 125 crore, and Rs 232 crore respectively, provisional data showed.
