  • Sensex, Nifty crash 13% in broader selloff

    Key domestic benchmarks crashed on Monday after the rapidly spreading coronavirus pandemic sent major Indian states into a lockdown. Investors feared that the Covid-19 outbreak could bring economy to a grinding halt.

    The barometer index, the S&P BSE Sensex crashed 3934.72 points or 13.15% at 25,981.24. The Nifty 50 index slumped 1135.20 points or 12.98% at 7,610.25. The crash was led by a steep selloff in shares of private lenders and auto companies.

    In the broader market, the S&P BSE Mid-Cap index tanked 12.83% while the S&P BSE Small-Cap index declined 12.27%.

    Sellers outpaced buyers. On the BSE, 233 shares rose and 2036 shares fell. A total of 132 shares were unchanged. In Nifty 50 index, all 50 stocks declined.

    The Sensex and the Nifty hit lower circuit limit of 10% in morning trade. The market resumed trading at 10:43 IST for pre-opening session. Normal trading started from 10:58 IST.

    India Lockdown:

    After an overwhelming response to the Janata Curfew, 22 states in the country have announced a lockdown in 80 districts where Coronavirus cases have been reported so far. The lockdown will be in effect till 31 March 2020. During the lockdown, only essential services will be allowed to operate in all the districts which have reported cases or casualties due to Coronavirus. The lockdown is aimed at preventing a Coronavirus breakout in India.

    COVID-19 Crisis:

    Coronavirus has infected more than 341,330 people and killed more than 14,746 across the world. More than 99,040 people have recovered. India has reported 8 deaths and over 425 cases so far.

    SEBI Measures:

    Taking note of the continued abnormally high volatility in the market due to Coronavirus scare, Sebi has come up with various measures, including revision of market wide position limit, to ensure orderly trading and settlement, effective risk management, price discovery and maintenance of market integrity.

    These measures have kicked in from the beginning of trading today, 23 March 2020 and will be in effect for a period of one month. The position would be reviewed thereafter and appropriate view taken thereon.

    Sebi also has revised market wide position limit (MWPL). For stocks in F&O segment meeting certain criteria, MWPL may be revised to 50% of the existing levels. The margin for stocks meeting specific criteria will be increased, apart from having revised position limits in equity index derivatives (futures and options). Sebi also proposed to raise margin for non-F&O stocks in cash market to 40% in a phased manner. The proposed margins would only be applied in the cash market and may be applicable for a period of one month. The regulator also proposed flexing of dynamic price bands for F&O stocks. Currently, the bands are relaxed in the event of market trends in either direction.
