Hero Honda in top gear
EVEN after a month, the market still continues to remain shallow and the dullness that has been prevalent since the introduction of a new trading system is still persistent.

It closed with a loss of around seven points with respect to Monday's close. The sentiment reading of the tradable counters stands in favour of the bears.
