BSE: Top losers and gainers


Benchmark indices ended near one year lows amid weak global cues, along with selling pressure by institutional investors after the rupee which touched a fresh all-time low of Rs 62.85/$ raising worries of a widening current account deficit and higher inflation.

The 30-share Sensex ended lower by 291 points to 18,308 and the 50-share Nifty dropped 93 points to 5,415.

The Sensex and the Nifty touched an intra-day low of 18,139 mark and 5,361 levels, respectively.

The Nifty slipped below 5,400 mark for the first time since September 12, 2012.
