The market started off the week on a negative note as the benchmark indices lost more than six-tenth of a percent due to selling pressure in technology, select banking and financial services and FMCG stocks. Weak global cues also weighed on the market.

But the broader markets showed outperformance compared to benchmarks with positive advance-to-decline ratio. The Nifty Midcap 100 index gained six-tenth of a percent and Smallcap 100 index closed flat. About 1,077 shares advanced against 880 declining shares on the NSE.
