Sensex, Nifty trade cautious on weak global cues; Yes Bank, Vakrangee, Spicejet stocks gain
BSE Sensex edged 19 points higher at 41,135 levels while the Nifty-50 index ticked 11 points up at 12,111 levels. Bank Nifty index went up 22 points at 30,815 levels.
The stock market of India opened on a cautious note as the global bourses continue to bleed on Chinese Coronavirus fears. The BSE Sensex edged 19 points higher at 41,135 levels while the Nifty-50 index ticked 11 points up at 12,111 levels. Bank Nifty index went up 22 points at 30,815 levels.
Speaking on the current share market scenario Simi Bhaumik, a SEBI registered technical share market expert said, "Overall market is bullish. Nifty has strong support at 12,050 levels and once the Nifty goes below 12,100, it should be seen as a buying opportunity rather than getting panic." She said that Bank Nifty is showing weakness and it is trading in the range of 30,700 to 31,200 range. If it further goes down by 70-100 points, it would be a great buying opportunity for Bank Nifty traders.
