The Indian market witnessed profit-booking on August 12 as the Nifty snapped its six-day winning streak while the Sensex closed with minor losses after four days of gains.
Investors booked profits in light of weak global cues as doubts grew about whether or not the US lawmakers would reach an agreement on the coronavirus fiscal package to support its struggling economy.
On the domestic front, muted macroeconomic data and persistently rising COVID-19 cases dented market sentiment. The Sensex closed 37 points, or 0.1 percent, lower at 38,369.63 and the Nifty ended at 11,308.40, with a loss of 14 points, or 0.12 percent.
