Stock Market Today: On account of weak global cues due to the spike in Coronavirus cases globally, the India indices opened on the lower side with sideways trends. The BSE Sensex opened 272 points lower from the Monday close and hit 36,421 levels while the NSE Nifty was down 70 points to 10,732 mark. Bank Nifty index crashed 268 points and hit 21,820 levels.
Speaking on the current stock market scenario Prakash Pandey, MD & CEO at Plutus Advisors said, "Market is range-bound and the NSE Nifty has strong support at 10,670. If the market breaks this level then there can be some more correction in the markets while on the upper side Nifty is facing strong resistance at 10,830. On breaking the upper range, we can expect the 50-stocks index to regain 11,000 levels."
