TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
BSE has just stepped up additional surveillance measures in view of the massive selloff that have sent midcaps and smallcaps tumbling. The stock exchange has introduced a 5 per cent price band on as many as 109 shares and also mandated 100 per cent margins on all open positions in these stocks from Wednesday. Some recent top performers such as Radico Khaitan, HEG and Graphite India, among others, will get affected by these actions.
