Markets halted 4-consecutive days winning streak on Wednesday ahead of GDP data, with banking stocks being the top laggards while smallcap stocks outperformed. Despite maintaining outperformance compared to global cues, Sensex fell 0.55% to 62,622.24, while Nifty 50 shed 0.53% to 18,534.40.

Indian markets pulled back from their near-lifetime highs and also halted their four-consecutive days winning streak on Wednesday as traders betted cautiously ahead of the country's GDP data. Banking stocks were top laggards, while metal and oil & gas stocks also recorded significant downside. Consumer durables stocks rebounded and were top gainers followed by pharma, IT, and capital goods stocks.

Gains in large-caps like Bharti Airtel, Asian Paints, Tech Mahindra, Sun Pharm, and Tata Motors could not offset a sharp selloff in heavyweights such as Reliance Industries, HDFC twins, and SBI.

Also, global trends played a key role in dictating the domestic market's mood.

Notably, midcap and smallcap stocks outperformed benchmarks. Nevertheless, Sensex held above the 62,600 mark and Nifty 50 stayed over the 18,500 level -- hence maintaining their outperformance compared to other Asian peers and developed markets.

Sensex settled the day by falling 346.89 points or 0.55% to 62,622.24. Nifty 50 dipped by 99.45 points or 0.53% to close at 18,534.40. Bank Nifty plunged by 308.20 points or 0.69% to finish at 44,128.15. Also, Nifty Financial Services dropped nearly a percent.

Smallcap stocks were top gainers by advancing over 205 points on BSE, followed by midcaps whose index jumped by over 145 points. In terms of sectoral indices, on BSE, BANKEX shed nearly 425 points, Metal dipped over 230 points and Oil & Gas index slipped over 189 points. On the contrary, the Consumer Durables index climbed over 295.5 points, while IT, pharma, and capital goods stocks jumped between 100 points to 150 points. The Telecom index saw a huge 2.15% upside.

On the latest market performance, Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services said, "As indicated by multiple economic data points, the Indian economy is presently experiencing a robust recovery, leading to an upward trend in domestic equity markets. However, the rally is being hindered at times due to negative signals from global peers, as observed today."

Nair added, "Concerns about a recession and potential interest rate hikes in western markets are impacting the domestic market but it is nevertheless maintaining the outperformance."
