Indian stock markets fell sharply today, amid selling pressure in global markets. The 30-share index slumped 554 points to end at 60,754 while the broader NSE Nifty fell 1% to 18,113, tracking deep losses in realty, auto and metal stocks. Maruti was the top loser in the Sensex pack, shedding over 4%, followed by Tech Mahindra, HCL Tech, Tata Steel, IndusInd Bank and L&T.  Stock exchanges in Europe were witnessing heavy selling pressure in mid-session deals amid a surge in US bond yields. 

Market corrected today by almost 1%. The correction might continue for some time now with minor profit booking seen with Budget nearing. Investors should take advantage of this fall to add quality counters on major dips," said Rahul Sharma - co-owner, Equity 99.

“Post today`s correction 18090 will act as strong support for Nifty. If this level is breached than we might see 18000 levels. On upper side 18175 will act as major resistance, if this level is breached, we may see a rally to 18235 and 18300 levels too," he added. 

For Bank Nifty, “38180 will act as very strong support. If this level is broken than we might see 37950, post which 37690 level is possible. On upper side 38325 will act as very strong resistance. Once it is broken, we may see 38450 38580 levels too," Rahul Sharma said.
