Sensex Crash Today | Share Market Crash Live Updates: Indian benchmark indices saw a sharp selloff on Wednesday as banks bled following HDFC Bank’s Q3 results. 

The Nifty 50 saw its biggest one-day fall since 24 February 2022 as tensions in the Middle East and dimming hopes of a Fed rate cut also hit investor sentiment. All sectoral indices except Nifty IT ended in the red, with Nifty Bank and Nifty Financial Services down more than 4%. 

At close, the Sensex was down 1,613.64 points or 2.20% at 71,500.76, and the Nifty was down 453.90 points or 2.06% at 21,578.40. The BSE MidCap index shed 1% and the SmallCap index 0.9%.

Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index tumbled 3.68% to close at 15,282.32 — its lowest level since November 2022.

The mainland Chinese CSI 300 fell to an almost five-year low after China’s fourth-quarter gross domestic product growth missed estimates. The index, which measures the largest companies listed in Shanghai and Shenzhen, fell 2.18% to close at 3,229.08.

US stocks ended lower on Tuesday after mixed earnings from Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs pressured banks, and as sell-offs in Boeing and Apple weighed on the S&P 500.

Oil declined as the drag from a stronger US dollar and broader risk-off tone offset concerns over escalating Middle East tensions, including continued attacks on ships in the Red Sea by Iran-backed Houthi rebels.

Sensex Crash Today Live: Hareesh V, head of commodities, Geojit Financial Services on gold outlook

"Since domestic prices are at a near-record high, there are chances of a correction possibly in the first quarter of 2024. However, a weak INR and expectations of jewelry demand would offer downside support and hence it may preserve its positive outlook in the coming year as well.

“At the same time, gold in the international market is likely to face some headwinds so it may trade in a tight range with minimum chances for major rallies or liquidation. US policy decisions, firm equities, and the performance of US assets would be the downside obstacles while the chances of low interest rates, geopolitical uncertainties, and central bank purchases are likely to dent major liquidation in prices."

Sensex Today Live: Rahul Kalantri, VP, commodities, Mehta Equities

"Crude oil experienced significant volatility before settling on a stable trajectory. The dollar index strengthened, reaching a one-month high, thereby restraining the upward momentum of crude oil in the global markets. Additionally, milder weather conditions in the US during the latter half of January contributed to a decline in oil prices, as the potential for warmer weather could reduce the demand for heating oil.

"The surge in US stocks over the past two weeks, driven by increased US production and decreased demand, exceeded expectations. Despite this, geopolitical tensions in the Red Sea and positive Chinese stimulus measures provided support to oil prices.

“Anticipating continued volatility, we project crude oil prices to fluctuate during today's session. Support for crude oil is identified at $71.40–70.50, with resistance at $72.85-73.50 in today's session. In terms of INR, crude oil has support at 5,920-5,840, while resistance is at 6,110-6,190."

Sensex Today Live: Rahul Kalantri, VP, commodities, Mehta Equities

"Gold and silver experienced another sharp decline in a highly volatile trading session. The dollar index reached one-month highs, surpassing the 103 mark once again, driven by conflicts in the Red Sea and an increase in U.S. bond yields. In addition, U.S. stock markets closed lower due to market risk aversion triggered by weekend Houthi attacks on an oil tanker in the Red Sea.

"The retaliatory air strikes by the U.S. and U.K. in Yemen further intensified the safe-haven demand for the U.S. dollar. The decline in gold and silver prices was exacerbated by China's decision to keep interest rates unchanged despite lacklustre economic data. However, tensions in the Middle East continue to support the safe-haven demand for precious metals.

"Anticipating continued volatility in today's session, we note that gold has a support level at $2018-2005, with resistance at $2041-2055. Meanwhile, silver has a support range at $22.72-22.55, and its resistance is positioned at $23.20-23.38.

“In INR, gold finds support at 61,880-61,710, with resistance at 62,240 and 62,410. For silver in INR, the support level is 71,500-71,080, while resistance is observed at 72,850 and 73,480."
