A benchmark index for Indian equities ended flat in a day of volatile trading on Monday.

FMCG stocks weighed the markets down, while consumer durables shot up handsomely and PSU scrips made robust gains.

The 30-scrip sensitive index (Sensex) of the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), which opened at 18,400.33 points, closed at 18,398.91 points, almost unchanged from its previous close at 18,401.82 points.

At the National Stock Exchange (NSE), the broader 50-share S&P CNX Nifty shut shop 0.19 per cent higher at 5,540.9 points.

Broader markets indices, however, performed better, with the BSE midcap index closing 0.75 per cent up and the BSE smallcap index ending 0.92 per cent higher.
