Mumbai, Nov 27: After Dubai announced that two of its flagship firms Dubai World and Nakheel planned to delay repayment of billions of dollars in debt, markets across the globe plunged.
Indian equities too saw a rough day on Friday, Nov 27 with the benchmarks and the broader indices seeing red throughout the day.
The Dubai news was received as a possible second global economic meltdown, along with giving birth to fears of roadblocks in countries' recovery from the slump.
However, benchmark indices as well as European shares bounced back marginally, leading to the Indian equities recovering about 2/3rd of their losses in the last couple of hours.
Recovering 421.57 points before the close, the 30-share BSE Sensex shut shop at 16,632.01, down 222.92 points or 1.32 per cent. After recovering 135.05 points from the day's low, the 50-share NSE Nifty closed at 4,941.75, down 63.80 points or 1.27 per cent.
