Original Post: Mayhem again on the bourses this morning, with the market hitting the circuits and trading being stopped. From Moneycontrol.com: “Sensex and Nifty both opened with over 10% cut and hit the lower circuit and the trading got halted for one hour only fourth time in Indian history. Sensex opened down 9.75% or 1716.41 points at 15888.94 and Nifty was down 12.10% or 630.45 points at 4578.35. Sensex so far was down 25% and Nifty 28% from its all time high.” The markets have recovered since, and fallen again.
Bear in mind that this is an ever-changing situation, and the markets appear to be extremely volatile.
