Nifty IT & Nifty Realty have fallen over 3 per cent each and are the main contributors to the weakness in the market. However, financials are trading higher.  

As many as 1,709 stocks are declining while 241 stocks are advancing. 

 

Market update at 11.35 AM: Indices have been trading flat amid volatility. Nifty has lost all its opening gains and trades near 16,100. Meanwhile, Nifty Midcap and Nifty Smallcap are down by a per cent each.  

Among the sectors, only banks are strong and Nifty Bank is nearly a per cent higher. However, Nifty IT and Nifty Media have fallen over 2 per cent each.
