On the other hand, Tata Steel, Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M), Bajaj Auto, State Bank of India (SBI), Bharti Airtel and Bajaj Finserv were the top laggards.

MARKET QUOTE | Deepak Jasani, Head of Retail Research, HDFC Securities on Monday's market performance

"Nifty closed almost flat on November 15 after a higher opening. Nifty opened with an upgap and gave away some opening gains as the day progressed. At close Nifty closed 6.7 points or 0.04% higher at 18109.45.

On a day when the volumes on the NSE were in line with the recent averages, Healthcare and FMCG gained the most, while Metals and Telecom lost the most.  Midcap index closed 0.41% higher while Smallcap index closed 0.19% lower.  

Shares were mixed in Asia on Monday, with the specter of inflation weighing on sentiment and Chinese economic data surprising on the high side. European stock markets got off to a mixed start on Monday as rising inflation and increased COVID cases weighed on sentiment.

Nifty closed flat making a doji after an uprun. Advance decline ratio was in the negative reflecting profit taking across small and midcaps. The Nifty is finding it difficult to build on the gains. Institutional flows and volumes need to grow to bring a follow through rise. 18210 could be a resistance in the near term, while 17978 is a support."
