Sensex ends 119 down after hitting 27,000, IT stocks melt
Posted on 7th January 2016
MUMBAI: Marked by day-long swings, the stock market came off its nearly two-month high by falling over 119 points to close at 26,759, stumped by IT worries following proposed visa curbs in the US.

The NSE nifty too briefly retook the 8300 level before capitulating.

Information technology stocks hit a rough patch after US lawmakers pushed ahead with legislation to put restrictions on use of H1B visas -- Infosys fell 2.50 per cent, TCS 2.18 per cent and Wipro 2.18 per cent.

Selling pressure was so hard that it pulled indices such as IT, realty, FMCG, consumer durables lower.

The Sensex opened higher and advanced to touch a high of 27,009.61 before ending at 26,759.23, down 119.01 points, or 0.44 per cent.

The gauge had gained 245.11 points in yesterday's trade.

The NSE 50-share Nifty also regained the 8,300 level before settling lower by 30 points, or 0.36 per cent, to close at 8,243.80.

On a weekly basis, both key indices -- the Sensex and the Nifty -- recorded a rise of 132.77 points, or 0.49 per cent, and 58 points, or 0.70 per cent, respectively.

In the 30-share Sensex pack, 17 scrips ended with sharp losses while the remaining 13 finished in the green.

Sectorally, the IT index suffered the most by falling 2.54 per cent as two US lawmakers reintroduced a Bill to curb the use of H-1B visas, including requiring employers to pay more for workers under the system.

Other sectoral indices that ended in the negative zone were technology 2.16 per cent, realty 0.97 per cent, FMCG 0.81 per cent. But banking and healthcare bucked the trend and ended in the green.

ITC, Power Grid, Tata Motors, Adani Ports, Coal India, Axis Bank, NTPC, Reliance Industries and Bharti Airtel fell up to 1.56 per cent.

However, ONGC, Asian Paints, Dr Reddy's, HDFC Bank, HDFC, Bharti Airtel and Cipla ended up on the gainers list.

The BSE small and midcap indices also showed a weak trend, down 0.43 per cent and 0.27 per cent, respectively.
