Indices end lower on weak global cues
Domestic benchmark indices ended on a negative note after a choppy session on Friday amid weak global cues as the US Fed hinted at a rate hike next month.
According to analysts, the market was range-bound due to weak global cues. Investors are also awaiting consumer price index (CPI) data scheduled for release on Monday, which is expected to come down slightly due to the recent cut in fuel taxes and fall in oil prices.
Among top losers that dragged down key indices were Infosys, TCS, Reliance Industries, SBI, Tata Steel and ITC, falling up to 2.15 per cent.
On the other hand, YES Bank was the top gainer in the Sensex, rallying 5.49 per cent, followed by Asian Paints, Adani Ports, Sun Pharma, Hero MotoCorp, HUL and Maruti, rising up to 3.79 per cent.
