Mumbai: The BSE Sensex plunged around 262 points to end at a two-week low of 35,286.74 today, tracking a sell-off across Asian and European markets after the US and China escalated their trade dispute. The 30-share barometer opened positive, but soon fell on widespread selling. It finally settled at 35,286.74, down 261.52 points, or 0.74 per cent. This is its lowest closing since June 6, when it had ended at 35,178.88.
Beijing: In a tit-for-tat action, China today imposed additional duties on USD 50 billion worth of American products, a day after US President Donald Trump slapped a stiff 25 per cent tariff on Chinese goods worth similar amount, triggering a full-fledged trade war between the world’s two largest economies.
Mumbai: Markets ended with mild gains today after yet another choppy session as investors kept their faith in consumption stocks amid an encouraging start to the earnings season.
