Opening stock: Equity indices in red, financials and metals lose shine

Equity benchmark indices fell by over 1 per cent during early hours on June 29 amid weak global cues as coronavirus cases continue to surge across the world.

Except for Nifty FMCG and pharma, all sectoral indices at the National Stock Exchange were in the negative zone with Nifty metal down by 2.6 per cent, private bank by 2.3 per cent and financial service by 2 per cent.

Among stocks, Bajaj Finance dropped by 4.3 per cent to Rs 2,778.85 per share while Bajaj Finserv slipped by 2.8 per cent to Rs 5,776.85.

Private lenders were on slippery ground with Axis Bank down by 4.4 per cent, IndusInd Bank by 3 per cent and ICICI Bank by 2.6 per cent.

Hindalco, JSW Steel, Coal India, Bharti Infratel and Tech Mahindra too traded with a negative bias.

But FMCG majors ITC, Nestle India and Britannia were in the positive zone along with Cipla and Sun Pharma.
