Mumbai, June 1:
Investor anxiety — on the eve of RBI’s monetary policy review — over whether the apex bank would cut key lending rates led a barometer index of the Indian equities markets to provisionally end flat on Monday.
The benchmark index of the Indian equities markets, the 30-scrip Sensitive Index (Sensex), provisionally closed only 21 points – or 0.07 percent – up after the day’s trade.
The wider 50-scrip Nifty of the National Stock Exchange (NSE) also provisionally closed flat. It closed the day’s trade marginally down by 0.25 points at 8,433.40 points.
The Sensex of the S&P Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), which opened at 27,770.79 points, closed at 27,848.99 points (at 3.45 p.m.), up 20.55 points or 0.07 percent from the previous day’s close at 27,828.44 points.
The Sensex touched a high of 27,959.43 points and a low of 27,737.58 points in the intra-day trade. (IANS)
