The NSE 50-share benchmark index which opened on a negative note at previous trade on 10,868.85 closed below 10,800 levels at 10,792.50, 117.60 points down. The index fell sharply and closed lower following the weakness in global peers and on profit booking.
All sectoral indices were in red and caught in bear trap. Even the Metals fell 3.4 percent on concerns of a slowdown in China and Auto lost 3 percent amid weak December sales.
Taking cues from previous trade and global sentiment it is expected to see a flat to positive opening in today's trading session.
