The Nifty 50 and Sensex indices continued their downward trend, marking the third consecutive session of losses on Thursday. The selling pressure in the domestic market has been attributed to the increasing US bond yields, driven by recent economic data in the United States. This has raised concerns about potential delays in interest rate cuts.

On Thursday, the Nifty 50 started at 21,414.20, opening lower than the previous close of 21,571.95. The index reached its intraday low at 21,285.55 and closed 110 points or 0.51% lower at 21,462.25.
