Stock Market: On account of $5 trillion aid by G-20 member nations to fight Coronavirus, the Indian indices extended its rally for the fourth straight trade session. The BSE Sensex skyrocketed 956 points to 30,903 levels while the NSE Nifty index soared 335 points to 8,976 levels. Bank Nifty index shot up 1,340 points to 20,954 levels.
Speaking on the current rise in the Indian share market Prakash Pandey, MD & CEO at Plutus Advisors said, "This rise can be attributed to two reasons. $5 trillion aid by the G-20 and yesterday's Rs 1.7 lakh crore relief for rural India. These two developments have gone down well among the investors as they are expecting a special package for the financial world in the near future. From now onwards, if the US markets don't show any kind f weakness, then Nifty can continue to hold its strong support of 8,300 levels."
