Speaking on the current market scenario Simi Bhaumik, a SEBI registered technical equity analyst said, "Once again the Nifty has closed below 10,850 and hence I would advise stock market investors to wait for the tomorrow opening bell. If the Nifty opens above 10,850 levels then we can expect fresh recovery and its next target would be 11,000 and then 11,200 to 11,250." At Bank Nifty she said that 27,000 was strong support that has been broken but still the banking, auto and metal stocks are bullish and any dip in the index majors should be seen as a buying opportunity for the share market investors.
Realty stocks led the bloodbath at Dalal Street as the BSE Realty index went down 1.77 per cent from its previous close. Realty major DLF share price crashed 2.87 per cent, shares of Oberoi Realty nosedived 3.57 per cent, shares of Housing Development & Infrastructure dipped 4.16 per cent, Prestige Estates Projects went off near 2 per cent while Sobha stocks went down around 0.65 per cent.

The BSE Banking index went down around 0.9 per cent today as the banking major ICICI Bank share price crashed 2.16 per cent, shares of Kotak Mahindra Bank dipped 1.16 per cent, Federal Bank shares lost 0.9 per cent while Yes Bank share price scaled 4.12 per cent after the closing bell.
