Let’s take a quick look at what happened on Dalal Street today.

The benchmark capital indices were brought to the 2020 calendar on a warm note. A decline in heavyweights, such as TCS, RIL and ITC, offset gains in banking and financial stocks, as indices ended on December F&O.

The Sensex package of 30 witnesses witnessed the flip trading, before ending the day with 5 points above. With this, the index recorded the seventh day of consecutive gains. Nifty, however, broke his winning streak after breaking the 14,000 intraday level. It closed the F&O series in December at 13,982.

TCS, UltraTech Cement and Bharti Airtel each decreased by 1.3%. Kotak Mahindra Bank, Tech Mahindra and ITC fell 1% or more. SAIL, BEL, Jubilant Foodworks and Vodafone Idea won by 4-6%. Higher market indices outperformed by a good margin.
