Stock Market: On account of weekend profit-booking, the Indian indices pared the early morning gains in the last trading hours. The BSE Sensex lost 131 points and closed at 29,815 levels while the NSE Nifty went up 18 points and closed at 8,660 levels. Bank Nifty index lost the crucial 20,000 levels and closed at 19,969 levels — above 355 points from its Thursday closing.
Speaking on the Stock Market of India Prakash Pandey, MD & CEO at Plutus Advisors said, "The NSE Nifty has managed to maintain above the crucial 8,300 in the last three trading sessions that reflect about the strong support it has at this levels. However, I would like to add that the entire world is a global village and any weakness is shown by Wall Street or any negative indicator from the US may hit the Indian and other Asian indices very badly." Pandey said that Monday opening will be crucial if the market opens in the green zone and escalated beyond 8,850 in the next week, then we can expect further upside movement in the market.
