Equity benchmark indices extended losses for the third consecutive session on Tuesday pulled down by heavy selling in IT stocks amid weak global trends and fears of escalating tensions in the Middle East.

The BSE Sensex plunged 456.10 points or 0.62 per cent to close at 72,943.68. The NSE Nifty fell 124.60 points or 0.56 per cent to settle at 22,147.90. Majority of the sectors ended in the red. Buying was seen in Oil & Gas, Pharma & FMCG.

Stock Markets remained closed on April 17 on account of Ram Navmi.

“Escalating tension in the Middle East has turned sentiments sour leading to a rise in crude oil prices. A mixed set of economic data from China further dampened the sentiments. Although better-than-expected China’s GDP number at 5.3 per cent came in as a surprise, poor March activity data offset any positivity. Thus, Global markets continue to remain weak. Weak global cues and Rs 11,295 crore selling by FIIs in the last two days hurt domestic markets. In the near term, we expect the market to remain volatile until the Iran-Israel tension eases,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head of Retail Research at Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.
