Equity benchmark indices touched new lifetime high levels before settling on a flat note due to profit-booking in select banking and telecom shares amid mixed global cues on Tuesday.

The BSE Sensex fell 34.74 points or 0.04 per cent to settle at 79,441.45 in a volatile trade. The NSE Nifty slipped by 18.10 points or 0.07 per cent to 24,123.85.  Majority of the sectors including broader space ended in red.

“IT sector saw a buying for the second consecutive session ahead of Q1FY25 results and a positive handover from its global peers. Niche sectors like paper too witness a rally on the buzz surrounding price hikes. Strong GST collections in June, manufacturing PMI index bouncing back to 58.3 in June, and expectation of healthy Q1 earnings has a positive impact on the market. We expect this ongoing momentum to continue with Nifty consolidating at a higher zone. While the FED Chairman Powell's speech and the release of the meeting minutes will induce some volatility,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.
