Apr 02,2024
Key equity indices ended with small losses on Tuesday, snapping a three-day gaining streak. The Nifty managed to settle a tad above the 22,450 mark. Consumer durables, media and metal stocks advanced while IT, financial services and pharma stocks declined.

As per provisional closing data, the barometer index, the S&P BSE Sensex, was down 110.64 points or 0.15% to 73,903.91. The Nifty 50 index shed 8.70 points or 0.04% to 22,453.30. Both the indices advanced over 2% in the past three trading sessions.

The broader market outperformed the benchmark indices. The S&P BSE Mid-Cap index added 1.14% and the S&P BSE Small-Cap index gained 1.28%.

The market breadth was strong. On the BSE, 2,847 shares rose and 1,004 shares fell. A total of 108 shares were unchanged.

The seasonally adjusted HSBC India manufacturing purchasing managers’ index (PMI) climbed to a 16-year high of 59.1 in March, from 56.9 in February.

The notable improvement in operating conditions reflected stronger growth of new orders, output and input stocks as well as renewed job creation.

The HSBC India PMI climbed to a 16-year high on the back of the strongest increases in output and new orders since October 2020, parallel to the second-sharpest upturn in input inventories in the history of the survey. Employment returned to positive territory and firms scaled up buying levels. There was a mild pick-up in cost pressures during March, but customer retention remained a priority for goods producers who raised their charges to the least extent in over a year, the press release stated.
