18 Nov 2022 , 09:48 AM

The volatility continued on Friday during the opening bell in bolth the markets. Sensex was pushed off the cliff to the point it was even below 61,770-level. Nifty 50 has even erased 18,400-mark so far today. A broad-based selloff was recorded in the sectoral indices with FMCG, auto, banking and pharma stocks being the worst hit.

The domestic equities tracked mixed global cues. Investors globally continued to monitor the developments surrounding the rising of Coronavirus cases in China. The new record high Covid cases in China has forced the country to once again pull the shutters down to contain it.

Asian Paints was the top bull soaring by nearly 1.2% followed by Tata Consumers, Cipla, HDFC Life and L&T surging by 0.5% each.
