HDFC, Infosys, Bajaj Auto, Reliance Industries, and Bajaj Finserv were some of the top losers, NSE data showed.

Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services stated that investors may stick to the safety of high-quality large-caps in performing sectors like IT, financials and construction. And many low-grade small-caps driven by speculation are heading for disaster. Investors have to be cautious since rising global inflation and the expected monetary tightening will be major headwinds for markets at least in the first half of 2022. The situation might change in the second half if supply disruptions ease and inflation come down.
