Stock Market News: On account of weak global sentiments caused by fears of China virus epidemic, the Indian indices continue to remain range-bound on Thursday Opening Bell trade session. The BSE Sensex added 50 points and scaled at 41,165 levels while the 50-stocks Nifty nudged 6 points higher at 12,112 levels. Bank Nifty index went up 95 points at 30,796 levels.
Speaking on the stock market's current scenario SEBI registered technical share market expert Simi Bhaumik said, "12,000 levels for Nifty is crucial. If it holds above this level, then we can expect Indian markets to scale upward as the overall trend of the market is still bullish. If Nifty breaks below 12,000 then bear may get hold over the Indian markets for next few trade sessions."
