The Indian equity benchmark indices are down nearly 2 percent in a highly volatile week ended April 22. The mixed earnings by corporates, rising bond yields, Russia-Ukraine crisis, high inflation and expectation of aggressive rate hike by the U.S. Fed in May dampened the investor’s view.
For the week, Nifty50 fallen 303.65 points (1.73%) to end at 17,172 levels, while BSE Sensex fallen 1,141.78 points (1.95%) to end at 57,197.15 levels. Among the sectors, Nifty IT lost 5.6 % and Nifty Media index fell 4 %. The Nifty PSU Bank and Nifty Bank indices fallen nearly 4 % each.
