The index Nifty Bank lost teh psychological 30,000 levels and closed at 29,803 levels after losing 310 points in the intraday trade on Wednesday.

Speaking on the market outlook Prakash Pandey, Director & Head of Research at Fairwealth Securities said, "Now Nifty (spot) is having strong support around 11580-11600 zone & dips towards that will be a good buying opportunity." Pandey said that the market was overall bullish and investors should take such correction as buying opportunity rather getting panic over the huge selloff.
