Todays Market Closing Report - 12th January 2012

Due to weakness in IT, the markets closed weak today, though banking, auto and metal provided good support to the indices. Oil & gas and capital goods, too, lost moderately. Broader markets outperformed largecap counters and that led to market breadth being positive. The Sensex closed at 16037, down 138 points from its previous close, and the Nifty shut shop at 4831, down 30 points. The CNX Midcap index closed with 0.7% gain while the BSE Smallcap index was up 0.1% in today's trade. The market breadth was positive with advances at 648 against declines of 645 on the NSE. The top Nifty gainers were Sesa Goa,IDFC, JP Associates and Grasim while the biggest losers included Infosys, TCS, HCL Tech and Wipro
