18-Jul-19   17:09 Hrs IST

Key equity benchmarks corrected after rising in the past three trading sessions. The Nifty 50 index slipped below 11,600 mark. The market opened lower and extended losses as the session progressed. Maximum selling pressure emerged at the last hour of trading session. Trading was volatile on account of expiry of weekly options contracts on the NSE.

The Sensex fell 318.18 points or 0.81% to settle at 38,897.46. The index fell 11.17 points, or 0.03% at the day's high of 39,204.47. The index fell 354.39 points, or 0.90% at the day's low of 38,861.25.

Slow progress of monsoon also weighed on investors' risk appetite.

Meanwhile, Asian Development Bank on 18 July 2019 lowered India's GDP growth forecast to 7% for the current year on the back of fiscal shortfall concerns. India is expected to grow by 7% in 2019 (FY20) and 7.2% in 2020 (FY21), slightly slower than projected in April because the fiscal 2018 outturn fell short, ADB said in its supplement to the Asian Development Outlook 2019. For the south Asian region, ADB said the outlook remains robust, with growth projected at 6.6% in 2019 and 6.7% in 2020.

Further, India's external sector position in 2018 was broadly in line with the level implied by fundamentals and desirable policies, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), noted in its latest External Sector Report. India's current account (CA) deficit grew to $68 billion in 2018-19 from $49 billion the previous year while India's net international investment position marginally improved with the deficit coming down from $438 billion in 2017-18 to $431 billion in 2018-19. India's overall international reserves, though stood at $411.9 billion at the end of March this year, down from March last year by $12.5 billion, IMF noted.
