Stock Market: On account of robust Wall Street gains yesterday, the Indian indices opened in the green zone. The BSE Sensex rose 545 points at 38,689 levels while the 50-stocks Nifty went up 161 points at 11,293 levels. Bank Nifty index surged 365 points at 29,233 levels.
speaking on the current market scenario Simi Bhaumik, a SEBI registered technical equity analyst said, “Nifty has strong resistance at 11,300 levels. If it sustains above this level, then we can expect it to touch 11,500 levels, but the overall sentiment of the market is bearish as Coronavirus impact is still looming around the global markets.” Bhaumik suggested stock market investors adopt ‘sell on rise’ strategy in the current market scenario.
