Benchmark equity indices settled lower in a volatile session on Friday following profit booking and underperformance in the FMCG sector. The BSE Sensex fell 269 points or 0.35 per cent to settle at 77,209.90. The NSE Nifty 50 slipped 65.90 points or 0.28 per cent to close at 23,501.10. Barring IT & Metals, all sectors ended in red.

On Monday, sectors like Fertilizer, gaming, and Oil & Gas sectors would react to the outcome of the GST council.

"The domestic market witnessed minor profit booking amid concerns over the slow progress of the monsoon, resulting in underperformance in the FMCG sector. The heatwave in Northern India is driving consumer durables stocks up. The global markets were subdued as weak guidance from Accenture led to profit booking in US tech stocks. Conversely, domestic IT stocks saw buying interest as market participants appeared to have factored in weaker earnings," said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.
