Market ends with small gains, banks lend support
11-Nov-19   17:04 Hrs IST

The benchmark indices ended with small gains after a volatile session on Monday. The key indices, which hovered in negative terrain for most part of the session, recovered in late trade, supported by decent buying in banks shares.

The barometer index, the BSE Sensex rose 21.47 points or 0.05% to close at a 40,345.08. The Nifty 50 index rose 4.80 points or 0.04% to 11,912.95.

Gains were capped due to negative global cues amid escalating violence in Hong Kong that pushed Asian stocks to their lowest since August.

Sentiment was also affected after credit rating agency Moody's late Thursday (7 November) lowered India's outlook to negative from stable, while retaining the issuer rating at Baa2. The rating agency said its decision to change the outlook to negative reflects increasing risks that economic growth will remain materially lower than in the past, partly reflecting lower government and policy effectiveness at addressing long-standing economic and institutional weaknesses, leading to a gradual rise in the debt burden from already high levels. Moody's cited a growing debt burden and the government's struggle to narrow the budget deficit.

The market breadth was negative. On the BSE, 1,244 shares rose and 1,293 shares fell. A total of 177 shares were unchanged.

In the broader market, the BSE Mid-Cap index rose 0.29%. The BSE Small-Cap index rose 0.17%. Both these indices outperformed the Sensex.
