In the broader market, the S&P BSE MidCap index crashed 748.99 points (2.85 per cent) to end at 25,558.21 while the S&P BSE SmallCap declined 712.12 points (2.38 per cent) to settle at 29,199.39.

Commenting on the market, Deepak Jasani, Head of Retail Research at HDFC Securities said, “Nifty ended the week down by 1.59 per cent. Markets seem to have started the downward move after forming triple top on daily charts over the last three days. On weekly charts, Nifty has formed a bearish Dark Cloud Cover. 17,401 and 17,170 are the next levels on the downside that may provide temporary support. On upmoves, 17,771 may be difficult to breach in the near term.”

Global Market (from AP)

Global stocks and Wall Street futures fell on Friday after higher-than-expected US inflation dashed hopes the Federal Reserve might back off plans for more interest rate hikes. London and Frankfurt opened lower. Shanghai, Tokyo and Hong Kong retreated. Oil prices declined.


Wall Street’s benchmark S&P 500 index lost 1.1 per cent on Thursday, adding to declines after August inflation stayed near a four-decade high despite four interest rate hikes this year to slow the economy.

In early trading, the FTSE 100 in London lost 0.3 per cent to 7,262.67 and the DAX in Frankfurt shed 1.7 per cent to 12,731.46. The CAC 40 in Paris sank 1.4 per cent to 6,070.61. On Wall Street, the S&P 500 future was down 0.9 per cent. That for the Dow Jones Industrial Average was off 0.8 per cent.

In Asia, the Shanghai Composite index lost 2.3 per cent to 3,126.39 after data showed Chinese consumer and factory activity improved in August but were still weak. Housing sales fell 30 per cent from a year earlier under pressure from a government crackdown on debt. The Nikkei 225 in Tokyo sank 1.1 per cent to 27,567.65 and the Hang Seng in Hong Kong retreated 0.9 per cent to 18,761.69. The Kospi in Seoul shed 0.8 per cent to 2,382.78 and Sydney’s S and P-ASX 200 was 1.5 per cent lower at 6,739.10.
