MUMBAI: It was truly a Manic Monday for Dalal Street. For the second time in the indices' history (the first being on 17 May, 2004), trading was suspended at the BSE this morning. The Sensex fell by a whopping 1111.70 points in the morning trade below 10,000 to settle at 9,826.91.

However, it recovered substantially to close at 10,482 down 457 points. The NSE Nifty, on the other hand, closed at 3081 down 166 points. Media stocks, like the predominant market sentiment, were on a downslide.

In order to avoid pandemonium in the market, Sebi chief M Damodaran asked people not to go by rumours but to take informed decisions. According to him, Sebi was in touch with the RBI and there were no liquidity problems.

Among the entertainment and media stocks, one company that managed to beat the heat on the bourses was Times Group company Entertainment Network India Ltd (ENIL), which operates the Radio Mirchi brand. The company's stocks opened at Rs 239.85 and closed higher at Rs 241.10, thus registering a marginal gain of 0.63 per cent.

The biggest loser today was Prannoy Roy's NDTV Ltd. The stocks of NDTV opened at Rs 220 today and closed at Rs 190, weaker by 13.64 per cent. Mid-Day Multimedia, on the other hand, recorded a drop of 11.82 per cent and closed at Rs 61.15 (previous close Rs 69.35).

Pritish Nandy Communications shed 10.14 per cent to close at Rs 45.65 from its previous close of Rs 50.80. Hinduja TMT; which on Friday 19 May took the deepest plunge, going down by Rs 48.30 to close at Rs Rs 701.75; today dropped 3.10 per cent to close at Rs 680.

Sahara One Media and Entertainment Ltd and BAG Films both shed around eight per cent in today's bloodbath.

The big question on every market punter's mind at the moment seems of course to be just how low will low go. When will the "market correction" bottom out is something no one seems to be able to hazard a guess on currently.
