New Delhi: India’s key equity indices — Sensex and Nifty — extended their losses from the previous session to decline during early trade on Tuesday.

On Monday, Sensex and Nifty fell 1 per cent each.

At 9.57 a.m. on Tuesday morning, Sensex was 0.5 per cent or 260 points down at 57,032 points, whereas Nifty 0.4 per cent or 69 points down at 17,048 points.

Equity  Sectors which won’t be impacted at all by crude spike and potentially higher inflation like IT and pharma are safe havens now, said V.K. Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.

“Metals will be volatile responding to global metal prices, which in turn will respond to news on the war front. Investors should ignore short-term gyrations in the market and stick to high quality stocks.”

Among stocks, Hindustan Unilever, Britannia, Nestle India, Grasim Industries, and Titan were the top five losers among the Nifty 50 companies, declining 3.0 per cent, 2.3 per cent, 2.3 per cent, 2.0 per cent, and 2.0 per cent, respectively.

On the other hand, ONGC, IOC, Reliance Industries, Tata Steel, and BPCL were the top five gainers during the opening session.
