Sensex Falls Over 800 Points from Days High, Nifty Tumbles 150 Points; NTPC & Reliance Top Losers

Share markets in India have erased all the early gains and are presently deep in the red.

Benchmark indices opened higher tracking the trend on SGX Nifty and following support from positive global markets.

However, benchmark indices saw a sharp fall and the weakness spilled across broader markets as well.

The reasons behind this fall could be rising crude oil prices and the US-China tensions.

Crude oil prices rose today, bouncing off multi-month lows in the previous session caused by data signalling weak US fuel demand.
