Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services, noted a temporary slowdown in market momentum following hawkish remarks from the US Fed, reducing expectations of an immediate rate cut.

Among the Nifty 50 stocks, 28 ended in the green, with Eicher Motors, Adani Ports, Mahindra & Mahindra, Shriram Finance, and Titan Company leading the gains. Conversely, Tech Mahindra, Tata Consultancy Services, Wipro, HCL Technologies, and Larsen & Toubro were among the top losers.
