Indian equity benchmark indices ended in red on Tuesday as investors turned cautious ahead of the RBI’s MPC meeting and the US inflation data, due to be announced later this week. Continuous foreign fund outflows and weak Asian and European markets also pulled the domestic markets down.

The BSE Sensex fell 106.98 points or 0.16 per cent to close at 65,846.50. The NSE Nifty slipped 26.45 points or 0.13 per cent to settle at 19,570.85.

“On the global front, investors are adopting a cautious approach even amidst declining bond yields as they await the release of crucial economic data. The significant drop in Chinese exports has also contributed to concerns within the global market. FIIs remain in a selling mode in the domestic market, yet active buying from DIIs is mitigating downside risks. Among sectors, PSU banks and pharma stocks inched up, while mid- and small-cap stocks have continued to outperform the benchmark, showcasing their resilience,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.

“In the near term, the Reserve Bank of India's policy decision holds significant importance, shaping market sentiment. Additionally, the flow of Foreign Institutional Investments (FIIs) remains a pivotal factor, given their recent trend of selling over the past few days,” said Pravesh Gour, Senior Technical Analyst, Swastika Investmart Ltd.
