The market is still sluggish as the Sensex is down 59.82 points at 27439.60. The Nifty down 19.70 points at 8263. About 1581 shares have advanced, 943 shares declined, and 1283 shares are unchanged.

Sesa Sterlite, Bharti Airtel, BHEL, Tata Steel and Maruti are top gainers in the Sensex. Among the losers are HDFC, Coal India, NTPC, Dr Reddy’s and GAIL.

The Nifty ended 2014 with a 31.4 percent gain, and analysts expect the momentum to sustain this year on hopes the government will announce more economic reforms and the Reserve Bank of India will soon start cutting interest rates.

Overseas investors, who invested USD 16.1 million in Indian shares in 2014, continue their buying spree. They bought Indian shares worth Rs 480 crore on Wednesday, according to provisional exchange data.

Oil prices have collapsed this year as the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries opted to maintain the same level of output despite a global glut caused by expanding U.S. shale output and diminished demand growth from China.
