Asian markets end slightly weak

Lack of active trading makes major indices mostly drop

Lack of active trading participation by the investors ahead of the Christmas holidays saw the Asian markets ending on a slightly weak note amid thin sideways movements. The markets started off decently on positive overnight cues and strong commodity prices but gave up their advances as the day progressed. The data out yesterday showed that the US economy expanded at a 2.6% pace in the third quarter, slightly faster than previously reported 2.50, following mainly because of a higher inventory buildup. Over the past four quarters, the economy has clocked a growth of 3.2%, reflecting a modest rebound from the sub prime led recession. US stocks edged slightly higher last night amid low volume with the Dow gaining 26.33 points or 0.2% to close at 11,559.49. Japanese markets were closed for a public holiday today, making the session a listless one on the whole.

The key benchmark ended a choppy trading session lower as macroeconomic worries arising from a high global crude oil prices weighed on investor sentiment. Low volumes caused intraday volatility in share prices. Healthcare and IT sector shares gained while consumer durables, metals and realty sector shares fell the most. Nine out of 13 sectoral indices on BSE declined. The BSE Sensex closed below the psychological 20,000 mark, after flirting with that level in intraday trade. The 50-unit S&P CNX Nifty closed below the psychological 6,000 mark, after flirting with that level in intraday trade.
