Today, the domestic stock market has succumbed to selling pressure, as investors are booking profits before the start of Q3 results. On the other hand, geopolitical issues, conflict in the Middle East, the Red Sea conflict, and highly volatile oil prices have affected the market since this year.

Today, the Nifty 50 fell 0.69%, down from its previous closing at 21665.80. Today, the broad market index fell to 21517.35, almost breaching its 21500 level. IT and the metal sector massively dragged the market today, giving most of the top nifty losers of the day, while PSU bank and the realty sector tried to make up the losses and ended in the green with some significant profits. However, most sectors like auto, banking, and financial services were flat today and ended in the green.

Here are the top nifty gainers and losers of the day.
