Sensex closes high on GST meet outcome hopes

BSE Sensex was down by over 67 points or 0.20% at 33,183.28 while the wider Nifty was down by over 11 points or 0.11% at 10,297.75.

However, it succumbed to profit-booking in late afternoon trade and slumped to 33,157.68, before finishing at 33,218.81, down 151.95 points or 0.46 per cent. Intra-day, it touched a high of 10,368.45 and a low of 10,266.95. This is its weakest closing level since October 31, when it had ended at 33,213.13. The week has been a disappointing one for the investors as the Street flattered to deceive them. Domestic institutional investors (DIIs) sold shares worth a net Rs 263.84 crore. Bharti Airtel took the biggest blow in the Sensex kitty by slumping 3.73 per cent following reports of a Qatar-based entity offloading its entire holding in the company.

On the other hand, Tata Motors (4.01%), Reliance Industries (2.00%), Asian Paints (1.57%), Sun Pharmaceutical Industries (1.42%), Kotak Mahindra Bank (1.27%), and Tata Consultancy Services (1.12%) were the major losers in the Sensex. Public sector lender Oriental Bank of Commerce ended lower by 5.94 per cent following deteriorating asset quality metrics.

Gains were led by banking, energy, pharma and metal stocks - up between 0.70 per cent and 0.95 per cent in morning deals. The UK's FTSE too inched up by 0.07 per cent.
