The headline equity indices traded near the flat line with some negative bias in mid-afternoon trade. The Nifty managed to hold above the 20,050 mark. Realty shares advanced after declining in the previous trading session. Trading was volatile due to November F&O series expires today.

At 14:30 IST, the barometer index, the S&P BSE Sensex, was down 53.03 points or 0.08% to 66,848.88. The Nifty 50 index lost 7.50 points or 0.04% to 20,089.10.

The market breadth was positive. On the BSE, 1,846 shares rose, and 1,830 shares fell. A total of 145 shares were unchanged.
