After rising for the six consecutive sessions, BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 were staring at a gap-down start on the first day of the week.
After rising for the six consecutive sessions, BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 were staring at a gap-down start on the first day of the week, as suggested by trends on SGX Nifty. Nifty futures were trading 52.50 points down at 13,729.50 on Singaporean Exchange. Global cues will continue to dictate market trend in the absence of any major domestic event. “We continue to keep a cautiously bullish outlook and suggest traders be light on the longs as the market is stretched in the short term. Any aggressive fresh buying should definitely be avoided at current levels. Immediate support for Nifty is now placed at 13450. Below 13450, we might get a confirmation for a brief profit-booking move on the downside which can then retest 13000 to 12800 zone,” said Nirali Shah, Senior Research Analyst, Samco Securities.
