In Nifty stocks, Powergrid, Adani Ports and Cipla were the top gainers while Bharti Airtel, HUL and ONGC were the prime laggards.

Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services said the market took a breather, the investors are in a wait-and-watch mode ahead of the monetary policy announcement.

A better-than-estimated Q2 GDP growth, ease in global oil prices and drop in global bond yield will be the silver lining for the MPC.

However, the expectation of a rise in domestic November inflation, drop in Rabi cultivation and increase in foodgrain prices will influence RBI to adopt a cautious approach in the short-term.
