Closing Bell: The stock market of India ended on a slightly lower side after trading tepid for the entire intraday trade session. The BSE Sensex nudged 74 points down and closed at 37,328 levels while the 50-stock Nifty lost 36 points but retained the psychological 11,000 levels after closing at 11,017 levels. The Bank Nifty index blinked below 28,000 levels after closing at 27,982 levels — losing 203 points in the intraday trade.
Speaking on the current market scenario Simi Bhaumik, a SEBI registered technical equity analyst said, "The market is range-bound and currently, the stock market of India is in the range of 11,000 to 11,250. So, any dips should be seen as a buying opportunity. If the market breaks the lower range and sustains below that level then we can witness further downside for next 100-150 points while on the upper side, if the market breaks the higher range and sustains above 11,300 levels, then we can expect some fresh buying for 11,500 levels."
