Markets drop from all-time highs; Sensex drops 216 points

<p>Due to profit-taking and a negative trend in the global markets, investors sold telecom, power, and utility sectors, causing the equity indexes Sensex and Nifty to lose some of their early gains and finish the day lower.</p>
<p>The indexes were also negatively impacted by aggressive selling in private bank counters including ICICI Bank and Kotak Bank, according to brokers.<img decoding=”async” loading=”lazy” class=”alignnone wp-image-30406″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/www.theindiaprint.com-markets-drop-from-all-time-highs-sensex-drops-216-points-images-2023-06-19t170803.177-11zon.png” alt=”” width=”1052″ height=”631″ /></p>

<p>The NSE Nifty finished at 18,755.45, down 70.55 points, or 0.37 percent.</p>

<p>With a 1.83 percent decline, Kotak Mahindra Bank led the pack of Sensex losers, followed by Axis Bank, NTPC, Hindustan Unilever, ICICI Bank, Bharti Airtel, Reliance Industries, HCL Technologies, IndusInd Bank, and Nestle.</p>
