The domestic indices will remain open on February 1, 2020, despite it being a Saturday, confirmed BSE MD & CEO Ashish Chauhan to Zee Business on Tuesday. Speaking on the day when Sensex touched record-high, Chauhan said that markets have remained open on the budget day even in the past and next year, things won't be different. However, he added that it is yet to be decided if trading will happen for the entire day or not. Chauhan assured the investors that they will be given enough time to complete their trade.
Generally, trading at Indian indices remains closed on Saturday and Sunday but on some occasions like Muhurat Trading and budget, it can be opened for trading purposes. As the Budget 2020 is falling on 1st February 2020, Dalal Street will remain open and hence the trading on Sensex, Nifty, Bank Nifty and other Indian indices will be allowed.
