Stock Market Today: On account of strong US job data, the majority of the Asian markets including Indian indices suged higher in the Opening Bell trade session. The BSE Sensex shot up 173 points at 38,583 levels while the 50-stocks Nifty went up 63 points after scaling at 11,314 levels. Bank Nifty went up 71 points and hit 28,730 levels.
Speaking on the Indian stock market Simi Bhaumik, a SEBI registered technical stock expert said, “Nifty has been trading in the range of 11,100 to 11,300. If Nifty sustains above 11,300 then we can expect it to touch 11,500 levels but the rise won’t be fast as overall market sentiment is bearish due to the Coronavirus spread in India.” She advised sell on rise rather than taking any buy position in the current market scenario and one must maintain stop loss while taking any buy or sell position.
