Real estate, auto, metal, tech and IT stocks were major losers in the early morning trade session.
Speaking on the current market scenario; SEBI registered technical equity analyst Simi Bhaumik said, "NSE Nifty has broken its 11,400 to 11,600 range and now it has strong support at 11,250. Any dip to that levels should be seen as a buying oportunity for 11,550 to 11,600 mark targets. Pharma, metal, IT and auto stocks are expected to outperform other sectors."
