Mumbai: After traversing nearly 300 points in the first
30 minutes of trade, the key Aequity indices traded on a flat note
around 9.50 a.m.
The BSE Sensex was trading at 38,980.96, lower by 8.78 per cent or 0.02 per cent from the previous close of 38,989.74 points.
The volatility can be gauged by the fact that so far, it has touched an intra-day high of 39,107.37 points and a low of 38,814.79 points.
The Nifty50 on the National Stock Exchange was trading at 11,547.55 points, lower by 23.65 points or 0.20 per cent.
The indices traded in the red in the first 10 minutes of trade, then turned green, before trading on a flat note.
The Asian stock markets too traded in the red after U.S. stocks slipped on Thursday as the release of a whistleblower report against Trump kept uncertainty high.
