Money on the markets

A maturing market amid the mayhem

Weak day for metal stocks

October 20, 2010

The BSE Metals index ended down more than 2 perncent on Wednesday with stocks like Sterlite Industries and Sesa Goa slipping more than 3 percent. Tata Steel fell 2.7 percent.

Such stocks declined as base metals prices fell in London and Shanghai following a sell-off in the international market on Tuesday after China’s first rate rise since 2007.

All stocks in the index closed in red. Do you think it is time to enter this sector?
