Sensex, Nifty close negative as Budget fails to cheer investors

  • Yes Bank stock plunged over 8% after picking stake in Eveready Industries
  • The broader market also extended loss

The Indian stock market ended lower on Friday as the Union Budget failed to bring delight to the investors.

Sensex closed at 39,513.39 tanking 394.67 points, or 0.99%, while Nifty settled at 11,811.15 plunging 135.60 points, or 1.14%.

During the intra-day trade, the Sensex had hit the 40,000 mark and Nifty edged closer to 12,000-level. But soon during the Budget speech, the equity indices gave up all the gains.

Nifty Metal and Realty were most affected among sectors.

Shares of NBFC gained after the government announced more powers to Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to supervise the sector. The PSU Bank stocks also rose. However, most of the sectors trades in the red zone.

Meanwhile, the broader market also extended loss as both the BSE Midcap and Smallcap indices fell 1.39% and 1.36% respectively.

Yes Bank was the worst performer among stocks plunging 8.36%. Other losing stocks were NTPC, Vedanta, Mahindra and Mahindra and Sun Pharma shredding as much as 4.81%.

Globally, Asian shares hovered near two-month highs on Friday, holding recent gains as investors awaited US employment data, a key release that could make or break market expectations about aggressive policy easing by the Federal Reserve.

The MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was set for its fifth straight weekly rise. World stocks and bonds have rallied since June on hopes global central banks will keep policy easy to support growth.

Investors worldwide are waiting for US non-farm payrolls, due later in the day, which is expected to have jumped by 160,000 in June compared with 75,000 in May.

Jagannadham Thunuguntla, Senior VP and Head of Research, Centrum Broking expectation from Budget

"Markets have been building optimism that Budget can elicit economic resurgence which is at five-year low. If Budget can offer fiscal breather and solution to continuous corporate defaults, markets will greatly welcome. Business sentiment is precariously poised, and Budget provides great opportunity for new finance minister to rebuild consumption and investment confidence. Further, as its first budget of Ms. Nirmala Sitharaman, it helps market participants to discern her thought process for the forthcoming five years of policy-making. Further, as US and China have embroiled in a trade war, the budget can build-up on Indian advantage to increase exports."
