Nifty Futures were trading 16.25 points or 0.15 per cent down at 10,625.80 on Singaporean Exchange, suggesting a weak start for BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 on Thursday. Factors such as lockdown in most parts of the country on the back of rising coronavirus, reports of experimental COVID-19 vaccine produced by Moderna Inc, and June quarter earnings will sway the market sentiment today. Besides, India posted a trade surplus of $790 million in June, with imports plunging due to coronavirus pandemic. “Market should consolidate in the near term given the persistent rise in virus cases and implementation of fresh lockdowns in certain parts of the country. Further, the ongoing earnings season would also keep the markets volatile. We would advise traders to stay cautious, while investors should be more defensive in their portfolio approach,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.
