Stock Market News: On account of Iran's missile strikes against the US forces in Iraq leading to rising in oil and gold prices, the Indian equity indices followed the weak global cues in the Opening Bell trade session. The BSE Sensex went down 390 points at 40,478 levels while the Nifty-50 index went down 116 points at 11,936 levels. Bank Nifty index dipped 456 points at 30,943 levels.
Speaking on current share market outlook SEBI registered technical stock analyst Simi Bhaumik said, "If the Nifty sustains above 12,000 and Bank Nifty manages to maintain above 31,350 because these two are the crucial levels for the Indian share market in coming to few trade sessions. However, Bank Nifty seems weak and if it fails to sustain above 31,350 levels then the heavy selloff in the banking stocks will lead to tank at Sensex and Nifty."
