Markets yesterday succumbed to selling pressure at the late hours of trade to close at day’s low with Bank Nifty and Metal sector acting as major draggers. Global stock markets were caught in the grip of contagion fears sparked by troubles at China Evergrande which prompted investors to flee riskier assets. If the Chinese Yuan begins its depreciation, the carnage will spill over to the Rupee and this may trigger relentless selling in Indian markets. For Nifty, the crucial support is seen at 17214 and at 36000 in Bank Nifty for activating a sharp fall in the coming days.
U.S indices fell as fear of contagion from the potential collapse of China’s Evergrande drove investors out of equities in a flight for safety. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 614.41 points, or 1.78%, to 33,970.47, the S&P 500 lost 75.26 points, or 1.70%, to 4,357.73 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 330.07 points, or 2.19%, to 14,713.90. Oil prices fell 2% on Monday as investors grew more risk-averse, which hurt stock markets and boosted the U.S. dollar, making oil more expensive for holders of other currencies
