November 3, 2021 (MLN): The domestic equity market remained range-bound throughout the session as it oscillated between red and green zones and concluded the day on a negative note after shedding 80.84 points, down by 0.17% to arrive at the 47,032.44 points mark.
The bearish spell was witnessed due to negative sentiments stemming from resurging international coal prices (7.57% DoD) putting pressure on local cement scrips.
