Stock Market News: On account of the surprise interest rate cut by the US Federal Reserve to counter the Coronavirus impact on the global economy, the Indian indices remained unmoved and opened on the lower side today. The BSE Sensex opened 62 points down at 38,561 levels while the 50-stocks Nifty was down 10 points at 11,293 levels. Bank Nifty went down 155 points at 29,021 levels.
Speaking on the current market scenario Rohit Singre, Senior Technical Research Analyst at LKP Securities said, “The market is having strong support at 11,100 and once it sustains above 11,300 then we can see it going up to 11,550. But, my suggestion is to remain cautious and don’t enter the crucial levels as mentioned. Bullish or bearish trend can be attributed to the breakage of either side of the Nifty range of 11,100 to 11,500.”
