Trends on SGX Nifty suggest a positive opening for the BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 with a gain of 37.50 points
Trends on SGX Nifty suggest a positive opening for the BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 with a gain of 37.50 points. The Nifty futures were trading at 15,817 on the Singaporean Exchange. In the previous session, equity indices ended at their highest ever closing levels, where the 30-stock index closed at 52,328 while the Nifty 50 index settled at 15,751. Chartists suggest that 15,750-15,800 and 52,300-52,400 would be major obstacles for the Nifty and Sensex and sustenance above 15800 and 52400 levels, would invite short covering in the market. “Below the levels of 15,700 and 52,300, Nifty would fall to 15,600 and 52,000 or 15,550 and 51,850 level,” said Shrikant Chouhan, Executive Vice President, Equity Technical Research at Kotak Securities.
