As the market was flat today, the sectoral indices remained flat with marginal gains and losses. However, the IT sector, which dragged the market for the entire week today, was the primary sector pushing the market higher.

Wrapping up

The geopolitical issues leading to adverse global cues are mainly affecting the stock markets across the globe, and the Indian stock market is no exception. With highly volatile oil prices, all the sectors are getting affected and this is why the market had been sluggish for the entire week and even closing on the same note.
