pulled back from recent record highs and ended the day flat on Tuesday, with expectations of volatility looming over global markets in the coming days.

Hindustan Copper was among the stocks in the F&O ban period, triggered by breaching the market-wide position limit. Foreign portfolio investors continued to be net sellers for the second consecutive day, while domestic institutional investors bought shares worth Rs 1,953 crore.
The rupee closed marginally lower against the US dollar at 83.42, influenced by a firm dollar and elevated crude prices. Additionally, FIIs increased their net short position from Rs 21,587 crore to Rs 15,427 crore. The market outlook remains cautious amidst global economic uncertainties and upcoming data releases.
