The BSE Sensex crashed 205 points and closed at 41,323 levels while the Nifty-50 index went down 54 points and closed at 12,169 levels, above the 12,150 support level.
The stock market of India went down on account of the weak global cues coming in from the Libya-Iraq crisis that led to a rise in global crude oil prices. The BSE Sensex crashed 205 points and closed at 41,323 levels while the Nifty-50 index went down 54 points and closed at 12,169 levels, above the 12,150 support level. Bank Nifty index shed 133 points and closed at 30,947 levels after the Closing Bell trade session.
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."
