“After lingering in negative territory for most part of the trading session, markets ended with steep losses after selling intensified towards the fag-end. Weak global cues contributed to the overall weakness as local investors cut their exposure to banking, telecom, power and realty stocks. The market is in a volatile phase due to uncertainty over global interest rate cut, geo-political tensions and sluggish growth in key economies, which is forcing investors to cash out of their investments at regular intervals,” said Prashanth Tapse, senior VP (Research), Mehta Equities Ltd.
