Greek crisis :: Dow sheds 200 points : Sensex ends 166 points down : Nifty settles at 8,318.

29-GreeceJune 28, 2015 :: The Dow shed 200 points late Monday morning, the S&P 500 fell 1%, and the tech-heavy Nasdaq lost about 1.25% in early trading. Asian and European markets are even deeper in the red. Germany’s main DAX index is down over 2.5%.

Greece only makes up 0.3% of the global economy, but it’s causing a global stock market sell-off, including in the United States.

Sensex ends 166 points down, recovers 430 points from day’s low.

After tumbling over 602 points in early trade spooked by Greece concerns that may trigger capital outflows, the benchmark BSE Sensex recovered over 435 points, powered by gains in HUL, ITC, L&T, ICICI Bank and Dr Reddy’s, but still closed down over 166 points.

Also, the broader NSE Nifty after dipping below the 8,200-point mark, recovered most of losses to close 62.70 points or 0.75 % down at 8,318.40. Intra-day, it shuttled between 8,195.65 and 8,329.45.
