The Indian stock market continues trading deep in the red with Sensex down 1,305.80 points or 4.43 percent at 28162.69, and the Nifty plunged 371.75 points or 4.32 percent at 8226.

The sectors which fell the most included banks and IT which were down over 5 percent each.

Bank stocks tumbled as investors fear that the lockdown triggered by COVID-19 will have a serious impact on businesses across the sectors and they may see a rise in their bad loans due to this. “We have factored a lockdown of 30-45 days in our revised estimates and cut individual banks’ loan growth in FY21 by 3-5 percent and taken deterioration in asset quality. Our earnings revisions are down between 10 percent and 35 percent,” said brokerage firm Phillip Capital.

The uncertain outlook and the country-wide lockdown has made banks vulnerable to a new leg of asset-quality crisis, with the most uncertain part being the lockdown period and the time that the economy would take to return to normalcy. “We believe the impact on asset quality would be the least for HDFC Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank, and DCB Bank, but it would be relatively high for IndusInd Bank,” Phillip Capital said.
