    The Sensex was trading with losses of 52 points, while the Nifty was down 10 points in early trade. Leading the set of gainers from the Nifty were clearly IT Stocks led by TCS, Infosys, HCL Tech and Wipro.

    Other Nifty stocks that gained ground were Tata Motors and Mahindra and Mahindra. Larsen and Toubro which has had a fabulous run in the last few trading sessions lost ground on profit booking.

    Banking stocks were also weak with private sector banks like ICICI Bank, Axis Bank and Indusind Bank all lower.

    PSU banking stocks were the bigger losers from the space as the Reserve Bank of India continued to caution on poor asset quality. Canara Bank, Union Bank, Syndicate Bank, Bank of Baroda and Punjab National Bank all dropped.

    IndusInd Bank was also down after succesfully placing shares to institutional investors. Meanwhile, markets across Asia were trading with losses on worries of a likely default by Greece on its debt. The Shanghai Composite lost another 3 per cent in trade, while the other losers were the Japanese Nikkei and the Korean Kospi.
