Nifty futures were trading 66 points or 0.4 per cent down at 17,939 on Singaporean Exchange on Wednesday, a day before weekly F&O expiry. The primary market will see one more IPO — Go Fashions — opening up for a subscription today. Analysts said that the overstretched valuations with a number of global financial services firms maintaining a cautious view on Indian equities were affecting the markets sentiments. “We expect the long term fundamentals of the market to remain positive and hence investors can look to accumulate good quality stocks. However increased volatility could be seen in the near term,” Siddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services, said.
