Our Bureau Mumbai | Updated on June 10, 2013

Indian markets ended the session flat on Monday amid mixed European cues.

The 30-share BSE index Sensex was up 11.84 points (0.06 per cent) at 19,441.07 and the 50-share NSE index Nifty was down 3 points (0.05 per cent) at 5,878.

Domestic sentiment was dampened as the rupee touched a new low of 58 to the dollar on dollar outflows and strong demand for the American currency from oil importers.

On the BSE, consumer durables index fell the most by 2.08 per cent, followed by realty 1.52 per cent, banking 1.12 per cent and healthcare 1.04 per cent.

On the other hand, IT, oil & gas, TECk and FMCG indices supported the Sensex uptrend with IT index up 1.01 per cent, followed by TECk 0.46 per cent and FMCG 0.14 per cent.

Among 30-share Sensex, Wipro, Infosys, NTPC, HDFC and Bajaj Auto were the top five gainers, while the top five losers were Jindal Steel, BHEL, Maruti, ICICI Bank and Tata Motors.

European stocks were unchanged after three consecutive weeks of losses, as China’s export growth tumbled to a 10-month low while Japan’s economy expanded more than initially estimated. US index futures and Asian shares gained.

Stoxx 50 was up 1.92 points or 0.07 per cent at 2,726.00, FTSE 100 was down 4.59 points or 0.07 per cent at 6,407.40 and DAX was up 68.21 points or 0.83 per cent at 8,322.89.

Japan’s Nikkei 225 surged 636.67 points or 4.94 per cent to 13,514.20 and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng was up 69.76 points or 0.32 per cent at 21,645.02.
