Benchmark equity indices Sensex and Nifty tanked over 1 per cent on Wednesday due to widespread selling pressure amid a sharp fall in smallcap and midcap indices for the third consecutive day.

The BSE Sensex tanked 906.07 points or 1.23 per cent to settle at 72,761.89. The NSE Nifty plummeted 338 points or 1.51 per cent to 21,997.70. All sectors ended in red with Metals, Realty, Pharma, Oil & Gas, and PSU bank down 5-6 per cent.

“India & US inflation data came slightly below expectations, thus dampening the sentiments. Markets failed to maintain their momentum amid intense selling seen in mid and small-cap. Ongoing scrutiny from SEBI, pending outcome of MF stress test, and expensive valuation post smart rally seen in last few months led to profit booking. We expect the sluggishness in the market to continue in the near term with Nifty’s major support ~21500 zone. Key event to watch out for is India’s WPI inflation which will released on Thursday,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.
