Sensex down 300 points, banking stocks fall

Bombay-Stock-Exchange

The key Indian equity indices declined on Wednesday morning with the BSE Sensex losing over 300 points.

Heavy selling pressure was witnessed in banking, finance and IT stocks.

Decline in the index heavyweights Infosys and HDFC also weighed on the Sensex.

Around 10.10 a.m., Sensex was trading at 51,601.51, lower by 333.37 points or 0.64 per cent from its previous close of 51,934.88.

It opened at 51,749.10 and has so far touched an intra-day high of 51,863.94 and a low of 51,590.25 points.

The Nifty50 on the National Stock Exchange (NSE) was trading at 15,498.65, lower by 76.20 points or 0.49 per cent from its previous close.

Manish Hathiramani, technical analyst with Deen Dayal Investments said: “The Index has started on a soft note this morning. It has had a good rally up and perhaps there could be marginal profit booking and offloading of positions.”

“However, the trend continues to remain positive and we should be heading to 15,900-16,000 as the next potential target. Since there is a good support at 15,300, every dip or intra-day correction can be utilised to accumulate long positions,” he said.

The top gainers on the Sensex were Power Grid, UltraTech Cement and NTPC, while Tech Mahindra, ITC and Infosys were the major losers.

Nissan, Porsche face action over false emissions information

Published

By

South Korea’s antitrust regulator has decided to order Nissan Motor, Porsche AG and their two Korean units to take corrective steps for falsified information over gas emissions of their diesel cars.

Nissan Motor, Nissan Korea, Porsche and Porsche Korea are alleged to have stated false information about gas emissions of their diesel vehicles imported for sale in South Korea, according to the Korea Fair Trade Commission (KFTC).

The KFTC also decided to impose a fine of 173 million won ($146,700) only on Nissan Korea, reports Yonhap news agency.

Illegal software installed in their cars caused gas emission reduction devices to not fully operate during normal driving conditions.

The practice meant that the cars did not meet permissible emission levels, but the automakers falsified such facts in signs attached to their cars, according to the commission.

In September, the regulator fined Audi-Volkswagen Korea and Stellantis Korea a combined 1.06 billion won for similar allegations over gas emissions.
