Sensex Trades Flat, Metal and Bank Stocks Fall

Mumbai, Jan 4 (IANS): A benchmark index for Indian equities markets was trading flat in afternoon trade Friday after profit booking on metal, capital goods and fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) stocks.

The 30-scrip sensitive index (Sensex) of the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), which opened at 19,782.59 points, was ruling at 19,745.46 points around 2.15 p.m. -- down 19.32 points or 0.10 percent from its previous close at 19,764.78 points.

In the Sensex sectoral indices, public sector undertaking (PSU) index is up 76.63 points. The oil and gas index is up 75.66 points and information technology (IT) index is up 33.66 points.
