Indian equities open positive; Sensex jumps over 1,000 pts
Mumbai, February 25, 2022
India's key indices -- S&P BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty50 -- recovered considerably on Friday morning due to value buying.
Even as the equity markets are expected to be volatile in the next few days, there is nothing to worry for long-term investors, said Ravi Singhal, Vice-Chairman, GCL Securities.
Thursday's sharp fall was triggered after Russia announced a military operation in Ukraine.
