As many as 57 stocks crossed below the 30-mark on Relative Strength Index (RSI) to enter the ‘oversold’ territory.
Shares of Sun Pharma Advanced Research continued to gain for a second day, gaining 5 per cent on Tuesday, after the dismissal of a patent infringement case filed against the company.

VA Tech Wabag saw profit booking after Monday’s sharp rally while PC Jeweller joined the losers’ club after CRISIL declared it a defaulter.

BSE barometer Sensex had a flat start but soon drifted lower as the session progressed and ended the day 247 points lower at 40,239. Its NSE counterpart shed 80 points to close at 11,856.

“The market was down mainly because of weak domestic news flow. The market is trying to digest the uneasiness ahead of the GST Council meeting, scheduled for December 18,” said Shrikant Chouhan, Senior Vice-President for Equity Technical Research, Kotak Securities.
