  5. Nifty Closing: NSE Top Gainers…
Gainers & Losers on 17th Nov

After two days of the market rallying upward, today, there has been a drop in the stock prices due to both domestic and global cues. RBI’s consumer lending guidelines and negative global cues have made the market sluggish. 

The broad equity market index, Nifty 50, has closed below the 19750 level, dipping by 0.17%. Of 50 stocks, 28 of this index have been nifty gainers, while 22 stocks fell and ended up in the nifty losers list. [Source: NSE]

As the central bank tightened the consumer lending guidelines, the banking and financial services sectors plunged massively, taking the whole market down. 

Let’s find out the top nifty gainers and losers of the Day.

Wrapping up

Today, the domestic market is totally under the influence of RBI’s take on consumer lending, digital lending, and crude oil movement on the global front. However, the overall market was sluggish but didn’t fall drastically.
