In the previous bear market rallies the initial drop in index along with share prices for a day or two was attributed to profit taking. However each time this profit taking was followed by panic selling, further dragging the index and the share prices down. This happened cyclically on each previous bear market rally and there was no recovery from that point onwards until the next rally. When compared to previous days foreign selling also has increased today. I am amateur in this share market, while I see no difference of this drop from previous occasions. I like to share senior members opinion.
