Nifty closed lower for the second consecutive session on Dec 07 after RBI monetary policy committee's decision to hike interest rates by 35 bps to 6.25%. Nifty after rising in the first hour of trade, fell making lower tops lower bottoms through the day. It closed 0.44% or 82.25 points lower at 18560.5. Broad market indices fell in line with the Nifty even as advance decline ratio ended at 0.65:1.
World stocks eased on Wednesday after a chorus of Wall Street bankers warned about a likely recession ahead, tempering optimism about China's major shift in its tough zero-COVID policy. Poor China trade data for November also did not help matters.
Nifty is now headed towards 18442 in the near term. On upmoves 18591 could offer resistance.
