Domestic stock indices gained for the 2nd consecutive day on Tuesday as BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty 50 rose nearly 2 per cent higher. S&P BSE Sensex settled 934.23 points or 1.81% higher at 52,532.07, and the NSE Nifty 50 gained 288.60 points or 1.88% at 15,638.80. However, trends on SGX Nifty suggested a weak start for benchmark indices on Wednesday. Nifty futures were down 33.50 points or 0.2 per cent down at 15,589 on Singaporean Exchange. Global cues were mixed as Wall Street bounced back after a turbulent week. Technical analysts say Nifty is currently facing a crucial overhead resistance around 15700-15800 levels. “Any consolidation or minor weakness in the next few sessions at the resistance could hint possibility of sharp upside breakout of 15800 levels,” Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities, said
