Vedanta, Tata Steel, Tata Motors, ONGC, M&M, Maruti, NTPC and HUL too fell up to 4.06 per cent.

Snapping its three-day rising streak, benchmark BSE Sensex dropped 189 points on Wednesday, tracking heavy losses in metals, energy, banking and auto counters amid concerns over a looming global recession.

After a choppy session, the 30-share Sensex settled 189.43 points, or 0.50 per cent, lower at 37,451.84.

 

It hit an intra-day high of 37,687.82 and low of 37,249.19.

Similarly, the broader NSE Nifty fell 59.25 points, or 0.53 per cent, to 11,046.10.

During the day, it rose to a high of 11,129.65 and touched a low of 10,987.65.

Yes Bank was the biggest loser in the Sensex pack, plunging 7.47 per cent, after Moody's Investors Service downgraded the lender's long-term foreign-currency issuer rating, terming the bank's outlook as negative.

Vedanta, Tata Steel, Tata Motors, ONGC, M&M, Maruti, NTPC and HUL too fell up to 4.06 per cent.

On the other hand, HCL Tech, Infosys, Tech Mahindra, HDFC, TCS and Asian Paints rose up to 2.61 per cent.

According to traders, besides stock-specific sell-off, fears of an impending global recession kept investors nervous.
