The benchmark Sensex ended lower by nearly 35 points on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) on Monday on selling pressure in capital goods and metal sectors.
The BSE barometer fell by 35.32 points to 19,930.68, following a steep fall in Reliance Industries and BHWL stocks. The index touched an intra-day high of 20,095.69 points and a low of 19,834.01 points.
The National Stock Exchange index Nifty also lost 13.70 points at 5,960.60, after touching the day's high of 6,015.30 and a low of 5923.35 points.
However, a steep rise in sectors such as realty, consumer durable, banking and PSU saved the market from any major fall.
