There was a rush of buy orders, but profit booking as also heavy selling in the IT counter following a sharp rise in value of rupee against US dollar negated the gains.

Infosys Technologies dropped 11.65 per cent to Rs 1,563.75 and Wipro 9.13 per cent to Rs 385.90 as investors offloaded position over concerns that a stronger rupee could affect their earnings, which come mainly from the US. The rupee closed at 47.78/80 to a dollar. As late as April, the rupee was trading at 50-level to the greenback. Although the global markets were strong, investors preferred to book profits at existing higher levels, facilitating an intra-day correction after a huge gain yesterday of 2,110.79 points or 17.34 per cent. Sensex today swung between 14,930.54 and 13,834.13 points. SMC Capitals Equity Head Jagannadham Thunuguntla said: quot;Today's market movement was more about volatility and volume.
