Market mayhem: 13 biggest falls of the BSE Sensex
The Bombay Stocks Exchange S&P BSE Sensex plunged by over 750 points, or 4%, its biggest fall in four years, to end at 18,598 on fear that the roll-back of US stimulus could spark selling pressure by the overseas investors in the equity space.
The stock markets were also under heavy pressure after the rupee touched a lifetime low of 62.01 against the dollar in morning deals.
It was the Sensex’s biggest single-day fall since July 2009.
Across market, around 1,583 stocks fell and just 729 rose.
Investor wealth worth Rs 221,268 lakh crore was eroded in on Friday's fall.
