Keep in mind that trade was not possible in many stocks because the first upper circuit of 15% was hit in just 30 seconds, while the second upper circuit of 5% was hit in just 10 seconds (Source: Rediff Moneywiz). The Sensex closd 2110 points up at 14284, up 2110 points, while the Nifty closed 651 points up from the previous close, at 4323.
