Sensex Tumbles 769 pts on Possible Fall in Foreign Investment


Mumbai, Dec 17: The benchmark Sensex on Monday tumbled by 769 points on fears foreign investment will slow down in the wake of rising inflation in the US that will limit interest rate cuts.

The BSE 30-share index fell by 769.48 points to 19,261.35 as most heavy-weight shares in metal, refinery, capital goods and banking shares declined. It touched the day's high of 20,032.67 and low of 19,177.19 points.

The National Stock Exchange index, Nifty, also slipped by 270.70 points to 5,777, after touching the day's high of 6,039.95 and low of 5,740.60 points.

Trading sentiments turned weak following a fall in global stock markets. In the US, the Standard and Poor's 500 index dropped 1.4 per cent on Friday, which pulled down most Asian stock markets on Monday morning.
