Four reasons for the collapse
Investors are worried about the rise in corona cases in the country.
Large sales in the global market are also affected. Other markets around the world fell 2 percent due to heavy selling in the U.S. stock markets.
Banking, financial, metal and auto stocks, the major sectors in the market, are under selling pressure.
Increased geopolitical tensions have also affected the market. The conflict between the United States and South Korea is deepening.
