    Monday’s stocks rout marked the fifth day of fall in the benchmark stock indices, and if one were to go by analyst projections, the benchmark indices may see another 3-5 per cent correction from here on. Sensex slipped below the 50,000 mark for the first time since February 2. The 30-pack index tanked 1,145 points, while its NSE counterpart Nifty fell 2 per cent to close at a sub-14,700 level. The market breadth remained weak, with two stocks falling for every one that rose.

    Dr Reddy's Labs, M&M, Tech Mahindra and IndusInd Bank tumbled 4-5 per cent. Axis Bank, TCS L&T, RIL and four other Sensex stocks fell 3-4 per cent.

    We have with us Narendra Solanki of Anand Rathi Financial Services to explain the market behaviour.

    Welcome to the show, Mr Solanki

    Welcome to the show, Mr Chheda

    Where do you see Bank Nifty heading in the coming days?
