Mumbai: The market panicked over coronavirus contagion in China’s Wuhan, the capital city of central China’s Hubei province, with 80 deaths reported so far and confirmed cases of infection being reported from other parts of the world. The Sensex fell 458 points, or 1.10 per cent, to close at 41,155 while the Nifty-50 fell 1.06 per cent, or 129.25 points, to 12,119, led by a fall in globally exposed metal stocks, financials and Tata Motors.

The volatility index India VIX rose 10.92 per cent on Monday to close at 17.26, with twin events— the upcoming Union budget and coronavirus contagion impact on economy, are expected to raise the volatility in the market in the short-term. India VIX had risen by 10.12 per cent last week.

“India VIX has been on up move since the start of this year as market is witnessing volatility at all-time high levels. It is likely to persist as market approached into Budget this week,” Sanctum Wealth Management said.
