Amid weak global cues, the domestic stock market on Thursday opened on a lower note. In the early trade, the 30-share index turned negative to trade 41.31 points, or 0.10 per cent, lower at 40,610.33. Also, the broader Nifty slipped 17.75 points, or 0.15 per cent, to 11,981.35.

It is to be noted that the domestic stock market went weak today as fresh concerns over the US-China trade deal kept global investors on edge, reported PTI.

Top losers in the Sensex pack included Bharti Airtel which fell up to 1.51 per cent, Axis Bank 1.12 per cent, Yes Bank 0.68 per cent, RIL 0.56 per cent and M&M 0.43 per cent. On the other hand, L&T rose up to 2.21 per cent, IndusInd Bank 1.54 per cent, HCL Tech 1.22 per cent and SBI 1.20 per cent.

Meanwhile, the rupee depreciated 2 paise (intra-day) against the US dollar to trade at 71.83 in early session. Brent futures, the global oil benchmark, slipped 0.29 per cent to USD 62.22 per barrel. Elsewhere in Asia, bourses in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Seoul and Tokyo were trading in the red as reports of a delay in the US-China trade deal dampened global investor sentiment.
