Union Budget for 2020 will be announced on February 1 which happens to be a Saturday this time. And similar to 2015, this time whether or not the stock markets will continue to trade on Saturday will be based on SEBI's final call.
As it is on the day of budget, there is panic trading as market participants weigh in paramount expectations.
And so, whether the stock markets will continue to trade for full hours i.e. 9 to 3:30 pm, or will it be a truncated session, needs to be look up to for.
