Nifty settles below 9,800, down over 1.5% for the week; Sensex ends flat

SI Reporter/New Delhi 29 Sep 17 | 03:31 PM

Benchmark indices pared gains to end flat, losing over 1.5% in the week on foreign fund outflows amid worries that the government may widen its fiscal deficit target of 3.2% of gross domestic product for the year ending in March 2018 to boost an economy that grew at a slower pace than expected.

Foreign investors net selling equities worth $1.1 billion during the month. They had sold worth $2 billion in shares in August.

Markets saw a tough month in September as a slew of negative global and domestic factors, including expectations of further rate hikes by the US Federal Reserve and a weaker-than-expected economic growth at home, hit sentiment.
