Stock markets have fallen across the globe, today. At home, after a weak opening, the Sensex at the Bombay Stock Exchange lost considerably more ground, and had slumped 240 points, or 0.8 percent, to 31,653 a short while ago. The Nifty at the National Stock Exchange had dropped 83 points, to 9,891.

Stocks fell in line with sliding global bourses, on escalating geopolitical tensions, after North Korea said it had successfully tested a hydrogen bomb. So other key Asian markets in Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea and Singapore had declined about 1 percent, each.

Major European markets in the UK, Germany and France had also lost ground. And at the forex market, the rupee had depreciated 10 paise, to 64.12 against the dollar in afternoon deals.
