Indian equity benchmark indices slipped from early highs to settle on a flat note on Wednesday due to fag-end selling in banking and power sectors amid mixed global cues.

The BSE Sensex closed 0.02 per cent or 11.43 points higher at 65,087.25 points, marking its third straight day of gains. The NSE Nifty moved up 0.02 per cent or 4.80 points to settle at 19,347.45 points.

"Positive sentiment initially propelled domestic equities, buoyed by softer US labour market data that caused a retreat in US bond yields, alleviating concerns about rate hikes. This positive outlook was reinforced by Chinese banks' move to reduce existing mortgage rates, favourably impacting Indian metal stocks. However, gains were tempered as the day progressed, primarily due to weakness in global markets attributed to lacklustre economic data from Europe,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.

“Banking stocks bore the brunt of this downturn, while mid- and small-cap segments displayed resilience amid the market dynamics," he added.
