The market ended the day, that was largely dominated by the bears and highly volatile, on a flat note. The Sensex managed to clock a record intraday high, while the Nifty reclaimed 9500 before tripping below the key milestone of 9450. The market had a gap-up opening and the indices surged over a percent, before witnessing a correction midway. The sharp correction was seen on the back of a drag on large cap names. However, FMCG stocks such as ITC and HUL weighed positively on the indices. The 30-share Sensex closed higher by 30.13 points at 30464.92, while the Nifty ended 1.55 points lower at 9427.90. The market breadth, too, was negative through the day, albeit the opening surge which was on the healthier side. Majority of the indices were largely lower between 0.5-1 percent, except for Nifty FMCG, which surged over 2 percent.
