Equities trade flat on global cues, weak rupee

Nifty hits record high in morning trade, Sensex surges 191 points

Driven by stronger rupee and revival of buying interest of foreign investors amid abundant liquidity, the NSE Nifty closed at 10,153.10 - a new peak - up 67.70 points, or 0.67 per cent, after shuttling between 10,171.70 and 10,131.30.

The Fed is due to announce its decision at 1800 GMT on Wednesday and is widely expected to keep rates unchanged after a two-day meeting but could begin paring its bond holdings, with reductions likely to start in coming months.

At 0615 GMT, the S&P BSE Sensex rose 0.07 percent at 32,426 while the broader NSE Nifty lost 0.04 percent to 10,143.

The Sensex touched a high of 32,499.88 points and a low of 32,383.82 during intra-day trade. FII's passive trading approach with capital inflow limited to primary market and debt also might have weighed down the momentum.




Telecom stocks - Bharti Airtel, Idea Cellular and Reliance Communications fell 3-6 percent after telecom regulator TRAI slashed mobile call connection charge to 6 paise per minute from 14 paise now, effective October 1. Bharti Airtel, the nation's largest mobile phone operator, ended 0.4% higher after slumping as much as 6% earlier in the day. Tata Motors fell 1.98 per cent to Rs 415.50.

Major gainers were L&T, Tata Motors, Bajaj Auto, Asian Paints, Bharti Airtel, NTPC, Coal India, Maruti Suzuki, Kotak Bank, Power Grid, HDFC Bank and SBI.

Mumbai: Broadly negative global cues, along with profit booking in metals, consumer durables and healthcare stocks, led the key Indian equity indices to provisionally close on a flat-to-negative note on Tuesday.

In terms of investments, provisional data with the exchanges showed that FIIs sold scrip worth Rs 1,185.44 crore while domestic institutional investors (DIIs) purchased stocks worth Rs 946.23 crore.
