Stock market fall on negative global cues


Stock market today

new Delhi. Given the signs of decline in the European market, the domestic stock market recorded a sharp decline in the last trading session of the week. During the trading, the Sensex saw a fall of up to 900 points from its upper levels. On Friday, the Sensex lost 433 points to close at 37,877. At the same time, the Nifty lost 122 points to close at the level of 11,178. The biggest decline in today's business was seen in the auto and banking sector.
