Hike in Oil Price, Inflationary Fears Subdue Indian Equity Indices

The index toppers were Yes Bank, Vedanta, Tata Motors, NTPC and Mahindra & Mahindra.

High crude oil prices and fears of a rise in core inflation subdued the key Indian equity indices on Friday.

According to market observes, crude oil at $67 per barrel and caution over a likely rise in core inflation pointed out in the Reserve Bank of India (RBI)’s latest minutes of the monetary policy committee meet kept investors away.

The S&P BSE Sensex closed 26.87 points or 0.07 per cent lower at 35,871.48, while the broader NSE Nifty50 ended flat at 10,791.65.

“Market turned range-bound after the release of RBI minutes which hints at elevated core inflation and threat of global growth slowdown,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services.
