Stock Market Today: Indian indices failed to sustain the early morning gains after the selloff triggered by the weak global cues. The BSE Sensex after regaining the 36K in the Opening Bell trade session finally succumb to the Coronavirus hit on the global economy and ended 62 points up at 35,697 levels. The nifty-50 index after making a high of 10,545 ended 7 points down at 10,458 levels. Bank Nifty index ended 25 points up at 26,487 levels.
Speaking on the current market scenario Prakash Pandey, MD & CEO at Plutus Advisors said, “Overall the Indian stock market trend is weak. 50-stocks Nifty has strong resistance at 10,720 levels while it has immediate support at 10,140 levels. If the lower support gets broken, then the major support below 10,140 is 9,800. However, it seems that Nifty will hold above 10,140 as Coronavirus doesn’t have that kind of impact in India that we are witnessing globally.”
