Stock Market News: On account of ease in Coronavirus fears, the Indina indices witnessed fresh buying in the intraday trade session. The BSE Sensex skyrocketed 349 points and closed at 41,565 levels while the 50-stocks Nifty soared 93 points and closed at 12,201 mark. Bank Nifty surged 192 points and closed at 31,492 levels.
Speaking on the current rise in the Indian stock market Simi Bhaumik, a SEBI registered technical equity expert said, "Much will depend on tomorrow morning opening. If the market opens higher and sustains above 12,200 levels then one should wait till further trends getting clear to them. Currently, Nifty has strong support at 12,050 but very heavy resistance at 122,250 and above levels. I would suggest share market investors avoid any kind of fresh position in the current market scenario."
