BSE and the National Stock Exchange (NSE) are closed for trade on October 18 on account of Dussehra. All wholesale commodity markets, including metal and bullion, are also closed.
The forex and commodity futures markets, too, will not conduct any kind of trading.
The stock market snapped its three-day winning streak on Wednesday (October 17, 2018), weighed by a sell-off in financials, particularly in NBFC and housing finance companies.
The Nifty, which rose above 10,700 in the opening tick, ended the day just above 10,450.
Automobiles, metals, pharmaceuticals and energy sectors were the other big losers.
At the close of market hours, the Sensex was down 382.90 points, or 1.09%, at 34779.58, while the Nifty ended lower by 131.80 points, or 1.25%, at 10,453.00.
