Following Iran’s military action, both the Sensex and Nifty saw significant declines on Monday as investors expressed apprehension about the possible impact of an attack on Israel. With the market currently at highs, investors are feeling cautious. “Geopolitical tensions have the potential to trigger a sharp market reaction, and we are keeping a close eye on the situation,” Kranthi Bathani of Wealth Mills Securities told ET Markets.
