Sensex today: A gap-down opening is expected in the market today after Asian markets tanked sharply, tracking Wall Street's worst day in six weeks as investors rushed to safety after US President Donald Trump announced long-promised tariffs on Chinese goods, stoking fears of a global trade war. SGX Nifty, an early indicator of the Nifty50's trend, slipped below 10,000.
Trump signed a presidential memorandum on Thursday that could impose tariffs on up to $60 billion of imports from China, although the measures have a 30-day consultation period. Investors fear that the US measures could escalate into a trade war, with potentially dire consequences for the global economy.
China unveiled plans on Friday to impose tariffs on up to $3 billion of US imports in retaliation against US tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminium products.
Reacting to this, MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan tracked a large overnight drop in Wall Street shares and fell 2.4 per cent. Australian stocks lost 1.9 per cent and Japan's Nikkei dropped 3.2 per cent. South Korea's KOSPI retreated 2.3 per cent and Taiwan shares slid 2 per cent. Hong Kong's Hang Seng was down 3.6 per cent and Shanghai lost 2.8 per cent.
On Wall Street, the Dow shed 2.9 per cent, the S&P 500 dropped 2.5 per cent and the Nasdaq fell 2.4 per cent.
On Thursday, The Sensex ended at 33,006, down 129.91 points, while the broader Nifty50 closed at 10,114, down 40 points. In the broader market, the BSE Midcap and the BSE Smallcap indices underperformed to shed up to 1 per cent.
