For the third day in a row, the NSE benchmark Nifty 50 index traded within the high and low of the November 16, 2023, candle. Although it moved above the November 17 high on an intraday basis, it was unable to sustain higher levels, shedding almost 45 points from the day’s high. Ultimately, Nifty 50 ended the day up by nearly 0.50%.
Speaking about the sectoral performance, the majority of the sectors ended in green, led by Nifty Metal and Nifty Realty. Meanwhile, profit booking was observed in Nifty PSU Bank, Nifty IT, and Nifty FMCG.
There wasn’t much action seen in the broader markets, as Nifty Mid-cap and Small-cap underperformed the frontline indices, with the small-cap index shedding about 0.11%.
