The benchmark Sensex fell 5 points after a choppy session today on the eve of the expiry of November derivative contracts and ahead of GDP and fiscal deficit data due on Friday. Heavyweights Infosys and Reliance Industries dragged the index lower even as ITC and Tata Motors provided some support. Bharti Airtel, NTPC and State Bank of India were the biggest of the 16 losers on the Sensex.
The S&P BSE Sensex opened higher at 20,449. It traded within a band of 20,348.06 to 20,482.67 before closing at 20,420.26, a drop of 4.76 points or 0.02 per cent. US is nearing the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, also impacted market movement across the globe. Indian markets too are seeing sideways movement. The 50-share CNX Nifty on the National Stock Exchange eased by two points to 6,057.10. Power, realty and IT shares led six of the 13 BSE sectoral indices down. IT stocks fell as the rupee continued to strengthen against the dollar, reducing the value of their overseas earnings when converted into the local currency. Fresh capital outflows affected sentiment. Overseas investors sold a net Rs 339.16 crore of shares yesterday, according to provisional data on the stock exchanges. The decline in the markets was stemmed by consumer durables and FMCG sector shares, which advanced. Brokers said there was volatility in the market as some investors booked profits while others sought to cover their pending long positions before the expiry of futures and options contracts tomorrow. The quarterly GDP estimate for July-September and fiscal deficit data is scheduled to be released on November 29. The rupee traded stronger at 62.2 levels against the dollar after a disappointing report on US consumer confidence in November.

Leading businessman Anil Ambani today said more than creating wealth for himself, his father late Dhirubhai Ambani derived greater happiness from creating wealth for masses. "If you ever asked what part of being an entrepreneur he (late Ambani) enjoyed the most, he would say, 'I enjoy creating wealth. But what I enjoy even more is in creating wealth for the people of the country,'" the Anil Ambani Group chairman said while addressing an industry event here. It can be noted that the late Ambani, who had a humble beginning as a primary school teacher's son in Gujarat, is regarded as the father of capital markets and the equity cult, who made millions of investors millionaires with the IPO of Reliance Textile Industries in 1977.

Stating that the launch of Kothari Pioneer Mutual Fund, which was country's first private MF in 1993, was his (Dhirubhai's) id…


Gripped by fear psychosis due to geo-political aftershocks, key stock market indices were on a sticky wicket for the fifth day today as both Sensex and Nifty fell over 1 per cent to hit their one-month lows. The sharp plunge left investors poorer by over Rs 95,000 crore as the market cap stood at Rs 1,27,08,846 crore. Risk appetite took a hit after the Economic Survey said achieving the high end of the 6.75-7.5 per cent growth projected previously will be difficult. This is markets' first weekly fall in six.

The BSE 30-share Sensex remained in the negative zone and settled down 317.74 points, or 1.01 per cent, at 31,213.59, its weakest closing since July 4. The index had tumbled 794.08 points in the last four sessions. The NSE Nifty after cracking the 9,700-mark to hit a low of 9,685.55, finally settled lower 109.45 points, or 1.11 per cent…
