Stock Market: Taking a cue from the global markets, the Indian indices slip in the red zone after breaking its week long losing streak yesterday. At BSE-stock exchange Sensex shed 141 points to 38,036 levels while the 50-stock Nifty went down 35 points to 11,277 levels. The Bank Nifty index crashed 293 points to 28,492 levels.
Speaking on the stocks market future outlook Sumeet Bagadia, Executive Director at Choice Broking told Zee Business Online, "Indian stock market is overall bullish. Nifty was facing strong resistance at 11,300 and yesterday it managed to close above this level. If it once again closes above 11,300 today then we can expect it to move forward up to 11,500. However, if it slips below 11,300 in today's closing bell, then it would once again slip in the range of 11,100 to 11,300 in which it has been trading for last one week."
