In the period from Friday i.e. April 29 to May 5, the blue-chip NSE Nifty 50 index declined by 3.26% from 17,245 to 16,682. Similarly, the S&P BSE Sensex was down by 3.16% from 57,521 to 55,702.

Among the sectoral indices, S&P BSE Power (-1.18%) and S&P BSE Utilities (-1.35%) were the least impacted in the previous five trading sessions, whereas the S&P BSE Consumer Durables (-7.34%) and S&P BSE IPO (-6.03%) were among those most impacted.
