The decline is likely to continue
Market experts say that the downward trend in the Indian stock market including the world is likely to continue. The risk of inflation due to rising crude oil prices and the geographical event cycle is the main reason for this. In such a situation, small investors should invest wisely.
Rupee continues to fall
The rupee fell by 12 paise to 74.70 against the US dollar in early trade. The trend of depreciation in the rupee has also continued for the past few days.
