U.S. retail sales fell by the most in a year in December month, pulled down by declines in purchases of motor vehicles and a range of other goods, putting consumer spending and the overall economy on a weaker growth path heading into 2023. Oil prices fell about 1%, surrendering early gains as worries about a possible US recession outweighed optimism that China's lifting of COVID-19 curbs will fuel demand for crude in the world's top oil importer. On the sectoral front, power, FMCG, and auto are down 0.4% - 1%.

Nifty 50 top gainers are Coal India, UPL, ONGC, BPCL, and Tata Steel while Adani Enterprises, Asian Paints, Tata Motors, Indusind Bank, and Adaniports were among the top losers.
