The stock market of India crashed in the Opening Bell on Tuesday on account of the Libya-Iraq crisis that led to a rise in crude oil prices in global merchandise. The BSE Sensex crashed 168 points to 41,360 levels while the Nifty-50 index went off 42 points at 12,182 mark. The Bank Nifty index went below 31,000 levels after shedding 173 points at 30,907 levels.
Speaking on the current market scenario Simi Bhaumik, a SEBI registered technical stock analyst said, "Overall the market is bullish and Nifty has strong support at 12,150 levels. If it breaks this support then we can expect it to further go down up to 12,050 levels. I would suggest stock market investors to take any dip as a buying opportunity, especially when the Nifty is at its support levels."
