BENGALURU: Indian shares snapped a five-session rally on Friday, reflecting weak sentiment in global markets after hawkish comments from US central bank policymakers, but notched their fourth straight weekly gain.

The blue-chip NSE Nifty 50 index closed down 0.01% at 18,255.75 while the benchmark S&P BSE Sensex ended 0.02% lower at 61,223.03.

Both indexes, however, have recovered nearly 10% since slipping into correction territory on Dec. 20, as investors looked past a sharp rise in COVID-19 cases to focus on December-quarter corporate earnings.

On Friday, stocks across the globe stumbled after US Federal Reserve Governor Lael Brainard became the latest and most senior US central banker to indicate hike interest rates would happen in March.

"We are seeing a marginal cool-off in prices as we are mirroring moves from broader Asian markets," said Siddhartha Khemka, head of retail research at Motilal Oswal Securities in Mumbai.
