The Nifty IT index saw the most significant decline among sectoral indices, plunging 2.6%, followed by the Nifty PSU Bank and Nifty Bank indices, which fell by 1.3% and 0.6%, respectively.

NIFTY:  The index opened 147 points lower at 22,125 and made a high of 22,213 before closing at 22,147. Nifty has formed a small bullish candlestick on the daily chart with upper and lower shadows. Its immediate resistance level is now placed at 22,220 while immediate support is at 22,080.
