Sensex, Nifty downward again


Mumbai: Markets ended lower on Thursday despite the clarification on minimum alternate tax by the government while a weak monsoon forecast raised concerns about an uptick in inflation. Further, investors turned cautious ahead of fourth quarter earnings from Infosys while worries about Greece also dampened sentiment.

Meanwhile, rating agency Moody’s today said emerging economies in Asia Pacific region, including India, have a high degree of immunity to external shocks, but will face challenges when the US Federal Reserve begins raising interest rates. The 30-share Sensex dropped 155 points to end at 27,735 and the 50-share Nifty shed 31 points to close at 8,398.
