Stock Market Today: On account of strong global sentiments after the Wall STreet rally yesterday, the Indian indices opened on the higher side in the Opening Bell trade session. The BSE Sensex shot up 654 points to 30,548 levels while the NSE Nifty index soared 194 points to 8,943 levels. Bank Nifty skyrocketed 606 points to 19,553 levels.
Speaking on the current market scenario Prakash Pandey, MD & CEO at Plutus Advisors said, "This rise in the Indian indices can be attribuited to the rally witnessed yesterday at the Wall Street. Nifty is currently at the support of 8,750 and strong support at 8,555. It is facing strong resistance at 9,050 levels as well. IF Nifty breaks this resistance and sustains aboe this level, then we can further expect around 9,350 to 9,400 level rally." However, he advised traders to book profit on every 6-7 per cent rise as much depends upon how US comes out of the Coronavirus fear and global indices can't afford any weakness at Wall Street.
