Domestic stock markets took a hit on Monday after Greece shut its banks for the week and imposed limits on cash withdrawals, reinforcing fears the country is heading for a debt default and a messy exit from the euro.
BSE benchmark Sensex which crashed by 602 points at one stage on Monday staged a partial recovery to end with a loss of 167 points at 27,645.15 even as Greece looked set to default on its debt repayment this week, sparking concerns about foreign selling in emerging markets. The market recouped some losses in later half on selective buying in the beaten-down counters to settle the day at 27,645.15.
