Despite positive trends in Asian markets, the domestic stock market struggled. Sensex fails to cross 80,000 due to SEBI’s notice to Hindenburg Research.

Despite a positive trend in Asian markets, the domestic stock market faced hurdles on Tuesday. The Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE)’s main sensitive index, Sensex, struggled to break the psychological barrier of 80,000 points. The impact of the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) issuing a show cause notice to Hindenburg Research, and the subsequent response from the American short seller, was evident on the market’s performance. At the close of trading, the Sensex fell by 34.74 points, ending the day at 79,441.45. Similarly, the National Stock Exchange (NSE) Nifty dipped by 18.10 points to settle at 24,123.85.

Profitable Shares

In the domestic trading session, several companies saw their shares rise. Notable gainers included Aditya Birla Finance, Wipro, Infosys, Tata Communications, HDFC Bank, IRCTC, TCS, Coal India, ACC, HCL Tech, and Sun TV Network. These companies managed to stay in profit despite the overall market trend.

Loss-Making Shares

On the downside, shares of Vodafone Idea, Shriram Finance, JK Cements, Bank of Baroda, LIC Housing Finance, Kotak Mahindra, and Tata Motors faced losses. These declines contributed to the overall negative performance of the market indices.

Asian Markets Overview

Looking at other markets around the world, Japan’s Nikkei, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng, and China’s Shanghai Composite showed strength in the Asian markets. However, South Korea’s Kospi and Taiwan’s Taiwan Weighted recorded declines. In the United States, the Dow Jones also closed weak on Monday, reflecting a broader trend of market caution.

Commodities Market

In the international market, gold was trading weaker at $2,325.25 per ounce. However, in the domestic Multi Commodity Exchange, gold strengthened to Rs 71,615 per 10 grams. In the global oil market, crude oil prices increased to $84.07 per barrel, while Brent crude reached $87.28 per barrel.

The failure of the Sensex to breach the 80,000 mark despite favorable trends in Asian markets highlights the impact of regulatory actions and market sentiment. The SEBI notice to Hindenburg Research and the American short seller’s response played a significant role in tempering market enthusiasm. Investors will be closely watching further developments in this regulatory saga and its potential implications on market movements in the coming days.
