Today, Indian markets witnessed one of the worst single-day fall in recent times. The major reasons for this crash is the coronavirus scare with no confirmed news on how many could get affected due to the virus and no cure or vaccine available as yet. In the short run, margin calls and stop losses are triggering panic selling in the market which is creating a cyclical effect as this is further pushing the stock prices downwards.
Leading the slump were banking stocks, with Nifty Bank index tanking about 8%. Banking heavyweights like ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank, Axis Bank and SBI fell between 7% and 12%.
