Sensex Ends 355 Points Lower; Hindalco and IndusInd Bank Among Top Nifty Losers
Tue, 20 Jul Closing

Indian share markets witnessed volatile trading activity throughout the day today and ended lower.

Continued selling in global markets pushed benchmark indices lower today.

The rising Covid cases in the US and UK due to the Delta variant, inflation concerns, and concerns about growth coming below consensus expectations are the few reason for the fall in markets today.

At the closing bell, the BSE Sensex stood lower by 355 points (down 0.7%).

Meanwhile, the NSE Nifty closed lower by 120 points (down 0.8%).

Asian Paints and UltraTech Cement were among the top gainers today.

Hindalco and IndusInd Bank, on the other hand, were among the top losers today.

The SGX Nifty was trading at 15,631, down by 111 points, at the time of writing.

The BSE Mid Cap index and the BSE Small Cap index ended down by 1.3% and 1.4%, respectively.

In news from the IT sector, HCL Technologies was among the top buzzing stocks today.

Shares of HCL Technologies dipped 3% at Rs 970 on the BSE in intra-day trade today after the company's quarter revenue growth misses street estimates.

Its revenues increased 0.7% sequentially in constant currency (CC) terms for the quarter ended June 2021.

Excluding the impact of a one-time bonus in the March quarter, earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) margin was down 80 basis points (bps) quarter on quarter (QoQ) due to Covid-related expenses of 90 bps.

However, the management reiterated its double-digit dollar revenue growth guidance and EBIT margin band of 19-21% for the financial year 2022.

HCL has seen the addition of eight clients in the US$50 m plus bracket, 11 in US$20 m plus and 10 in US$10 m plus.

The company registered eight large services deal wins and four significant product wins amounting to a total contract value (TCV) of US$1,664 m.

HCL Tech's exposure to deeply troubled verticals like energy, transportation, travel, hospitality, and retail are lower versus its peers.

It has a higher exposure to financial services, technology services, and life sciences.

HCL Technologies share price ended the day down by 2.3% on the BSE.

Speaking of stocks, here's a pattern that if you see, you must sell your position. After all, exits are more important than entries.

In the chart below, we can see the head and shoulder pattern - the stock goes up, makes a high, falls a little bit, goes up to a higher high, does not make a higher low, rallies again, fails to make a new high, and then starts to break down.

This usually happens in a situation where a stock or index has typically been in a bull trend for a while. Spotting this correctly can help you save money.
