Stocks plummeted after Russia moved troops into Ukraine. The benchmark Sensex fell 2,702 points, or as much as 4.72 percent, to end trading at 54,530, the sharpest daily decline in two years. Nifty shed 4.78 percent. The declines put the indices in correction territory as they have lost more than 10 percent of their value from a recent peak. Global markets tanked as well.

Why it’s important: War in Europe puts pressure on the global economy already reeling from the Covid-19 pandemic and galloping inflation. Investors are fleeing from risky assets and emerging markets are likely to bear the brunt. There are fears that the Ukraine crisis will raise input and energy costs.
