Benchmark equity indices fell sharply on Wednesday, continuing their losing streak for the fourth consecutive day amid profit booking by the investors ahead of the results of the Lok Sabha polls and muted global market trends.

The BSE Sensex declined 667.55 points or 0.89 per cent to settle at 74,502.90. The NSE Nifty dropped 183.45 points or 0.80 per cent to 22,704.70 amid high volatility.

On the sectoral front, Banking & Financials largely dragged the market as Rating agency CRISIL expects bank credit growth to moderate from 16 per cent in FY24 to 14 per cent in FY25 on a high base effect and slower pace of GDP growth. Pharma and Metals were the only sectors to end in profit.

“The better than expected consumer confidence data along with hawkish commentaries from US Fed officials led to a surge in US treasury yields to 1-month high at 4.55 per cent. All eyes will be now on Core PCE data which is elementary for the US Fed’s interest rate decision. On the domestic front, though FII selling intensity has reduced, the caution is increasing as we near the big event outcome which is resulting in profit booking,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head of Retail Research at Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.

“The volatility is expected to remain heightened in coming sessions, thus it's advisable to traders to stay on sidelines and not get too aggressive. The weak global cues are further adding to the nervousness and thus markets are likely to remain weak in near future,” he added.
