Mkts end in red but off day's low: Bank, autos up

The markets once again saw weak and disappointing opening today and proceeded to trade with deep cut for most part of the day on account of heavy selling taking place in scrips across the sectors led by realty, metal,oil & gas, power and IT. But the markets pulled back substantially in the late trade as heavy buying took place in the banking, auto, FMCG and capital goods space.

It was relatively better day for the midcaps and smallcaps than the frontline counters. Market breadth remained negative through the day and with advance decline ratio of nearly 1:2 on NSE.
