Despite mixed signals from Asian markets, the domestic stock markets opened with a good jump on Wednesday. However, in the early trade, the market lost early gains and started trading in the red mark. There was a record closing on Wall Street in the last trading session, but despite this, fear is spread in the market in view of the increasing infection of Coronavirus in many Asian countries. However, remaining untouched by this, both the domestic benchmark indices opened with a good jump. Nifty opened at its new record high above 16,300.
