Benchmark equity indices snapped a four-day gaining streak and settled lower due to selling in IT and FMCG shares amid weak global trends and foreign fund outflows. The BSE Sensex declined by 195.16 points or 0.26 per cent to settle at 73,677.13. The NSE Nifty50 declined by 49.30 points or 0.22 per cent to close at 22,356.30. Sector-wise it was a mixed bag with buying seen in PSU Bank, Auto, and Oil & Gas. Both the indices closed at their lifetime high levels on Monday after a four-day winning run which saw the indices surging by around 2 per cent.

"The domestic market experienced range bound movement post hitting new record high in the preceding day, influenced by cautious trend in global peers ahead of the Fed Chair's congressional testimony and key US jobs data. The absence of significant stimulus measures from China further dampened sentiment. Mid and small-cap stocks continued to underperform due to their higher valuations. The IT sector sustained recent losses amid concerns over delays in rate cuts by the US Fed. However, PSU banks outperformed, while auto stocks gained momentum supported by healthy volume numbers and pick-up in rural demand," said Vinod Nair, head of research at Geojit Financial Services.
