The S&P BSE Sensex plunged over 800 points breaking the crucial 23,000-mark on Thursday tracking weak cues from other Asian and European markets and weak earnings by leading index constituents.
The Nifty50 broke below 7,000 level hitting fresh 52-week low, weighed down by losses in banks, power, oil & gas, metal, and realty stocks.
The broader market declined in line with the benchmark indices with the BSE midcap and BSE small cap indices slumping 2.6 and 3.4 per cent, respectively. Among the sectoral indices, the BSE Realty was the top loser down 3.7 per cent in trade. The market breadth was extremely weak with nine out of ten BSE stocks trading in the red.
