In today’s trading session, the NSE Nifty 50 commenced on a bearish note, witnessing a significant decline of 0.74 percent throughout the day. As the trading hours concluded, the index closed in the red, leaving investors concerned.

Amidst weak global cues, the market commenced on a gap down note. However, during the second half of the session, extensive profit booking caused the Nifty to slide below the crucial 19,300 levels.
