India has witnessed a major stock market market crash.
The country’s benchmark Sensex closed down 6.9 per cent in early morning trade, plunging more than 10 per cent from its previous high of 18,200 on March 23.
It has now lost almost half its value against the US dollar since its opening on March 8.
A stock market crash can have far-reaching consequences for a country’s economy.
In the past, it has led to a period of instability and economic downturns.
In some cases, a stock market collapse is followed by a political upheaval.
A market crash is triggered by a sudden fall in a company’s share price and the ensuing panic selling.
This is called market moaning and is triggered when a company is hit by a downturn.
It is not uncommon for companies to be caught in the market moans as a result of poor performance, as well as financial distress.
The market meltdown has caused huge losses for many large and small investors.
According to a recent study by Naspers, there have been losses of nearly $1 trillion in the last two years alone.
According to a Reuters report, a survey of 500 major banks by the investment banking arm of the International Monetary Fund showed that over 70 per cent of them were not doing enough to mitigate the impact of a sudden stock market fall.
Naspers said that a number of banks have been facing difficulties in mitigating the impact on their liquidity as the market falls.
The IMF study also pointed to a growing risk of market turbulence that could lead to financial contagion in the future.
In a press briefing on Tuesday, RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan said that it is very difficult to avoid a market crash if the market goes down for several days.
Rajan also warned that the RBI may have to step in to help the financial sector.
He said that the Reserve Bank of India has taken action against those who are trading on margin.
According, Rajan also said that RBI will take measures against those traders who are profiting from a sudden market crash to ensure they do not create a financial crisis.RBI will also consider measures against traders who trade on margin in the interest of maintaining liquidity in the system.
