Mumbai: The BSE benchmark Sensex Wednesday turned choppy on profit-booking, after surging over 200 points amid persistent fall in global crude prices amid easing concerns over rising current account deficit and inflation.

The 30-share Sensex was trading 14.78 points lower at 35,129.71, after it spurted 201 points, or 0.57 per cent, to 35,345.49 points in opening session.

The gauge had gained 332 points on Tuesday.

Investors began booking profits at higher levels as indices rallied after Brent crude plunged nearly 7 per cent to a one-year low of USD 65 a barrel, traders said.

Strengthening the rupee, which jumped 67 paise to 72 against the dollar in the forex market, and mixed Asian cues too influenced sentiment.

Shares of Tata Steel surged 2.94 per cent after the company Tuesday posted a three-fold surge in consolidated net profit to Rs 3,116.2 crore for the quarter ended September 30, 2018.
Shares of oil marketing companies and aviation operators made further headway on falling crude oil prices.

State-run HPCL, BPCL and IOC were trading higher up to 9.39 per cent.

In the aviation sector, shares of Interglobe Avialtion and Jet Airways gained up to 5.18 per cent.

On a net basis, domestic institutional investors (DIIs) bought shares worth Rs 335.78 crore Monday, while foreign institutional Investors (FIIs) offloaded shares worth Rs 494.95 crore, as per provisional data.
