Domestic equity bourses Sensex and Nifty 50 witnessed a big fall on Monday as weakness across sectors, reflecting a global sell-off as US inflation reignited the worries about more aggressive Fed policy tightening.

Indian equity fell sharply on Monday, as the rupee hit a record low as swelling US inflation numbers, and a COVID-19 warning from Beijing dented the global markets. Traders now await May consumer price data for further cues. In today's trade investor concerns led to global risk aversion, dragging the equity markets across the region, with the headline indices trading more than 2.5% lower. Owing to these developments, the benchmark index Nifty fell below 15,800.

At the closing bell on June 13, the Sensex was down 1,456.74 points or 2.68% at 52,846.70, and the Nifty was down 427.40 points or 2.64% at 15,774.40. On the market breadth, 650 shares have advanced, 2759 shares declined, and 117 shares are unchanged.

Top Nifty losers were Bajaj Finserv, Bajaj Finance, Tech Mahindra, IndusInd Bank and Hindalco Industries, while gainers included Nestle India and Bajaj Auto. In the broad markets, BSE Midcap lost 2.7% and Smallcap index shed 3%. Sector-wise all the indices finished in the red with bank, capital goods, auto, metal, IT, realty, PSU Bank, and oil & gas indices falling 2-3% each.

Today, almost 46 companies in the Nifty 500 index hit their 52-week lows as the market corrected over 2% on the back of inflationary concerns dampening investor sentiment. The stock of RBL Bank was among the biggest losers today as shares of the bank tanked nearly 20%, hitting a new 52-week low of Rs 90.90 on the NSE. Indian rupee ended 19 paise lower at 78.03 versus the dollar against Friday's close of 77.84. It touched a fresh record low of 78.28 during the day.
