Mumbai, July 9: Facing the decline of 793 points on Monday - sharpest since October 2018 - the Sensex opened at 38754.47 points on Tuesday, a rise in 33.9 points. On the other side, Nifty opened at 11,531.60, with a decline in 27 points on Tuesday. Due to the nosedive on the beginning day of the week, equity investors lost close to Rs 3.2 lakh crore and as the market remains to be volatile, speculations of retrieving the loss are highly expected.
As per to the market experts, the plunge in the market is a post-impact of the Union Budget 2019, which was presented by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. Though on day of the Budget, Sensex crossed 40,000-mark and Nifty almost reached 12,000 mark, the slowdown in the stock market index seems pertinent. Even reports are there that Rs five lakh crore of equity investor wealth got wiped out in the last two sessions due to panic selling by the investors.
