In regards to decline in IT stocks, Manish Chowdhury Head of Research Stoxbox said, "The sector came under pressure after the US software solutions company, EPAM Systems, yesterday announced that it is reducing its second quarter and full year outlook due to further deterioration in the near-term demand environment. Moreover, we believe that the recent bounce in the IT sector stocks was mainly driven by gains in US technology stocks, specifically Nasdaq Composite. With the Nasdaq looking a little tired at all time high levels, we believe that investors are resorting to some profit booking."
