Mumbai, (IANS) The key Indian equity indices provisionally closed Tuesday's trade in the negative territory, paring some losses to recover from their day's lows.

A massive downturn in the global stock markets unleashed a selling frenzy on the domestic bourses during the day's trade.

According to market observers, all the major Asian as well as European stock markets, edged lower following an overnight downward correction in Dow Jones by over 1,100 points.
