Taking Stock | Market ends lower as Russia-Ukraine tensions weigh on sentiment

On the NSE, all sectors barring IT and auto ended on a positive note. Broader indices performed better than the benchmarks. The BSE midcap and BSE smallcap gained 0.6 and 0.9 percent each

February 23, 2022 / 05:11 PM IST

The Indian equity benchmarks were off to a promising start and largely traded in the green on positive global cues but selling in the final hour saw the Sensex and the Nifty close 0.15 percent lower on February 23.

“As global markets turned positive, domestic indices opened the day on a positive note, however, witnessed high volatility and succumbed to selling pressure to close the day in favour of bears,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.

The 30-pack Sensex opened strong as investor sentiment was lifted by positive cues from Asian markets. It rose to the day’s high of 57,733 but tanked 624 points before ending the day 68.6 points, or 0.12 percent, lower at 57,232.06.

The Nifty, too, swung from gains to losses. It touched the day’s high of 17,221 but lost 193 points to slip to intraday low of 17,028 before closing 29 points, or 0.17 percent, lower at 17,063.
