Domestic equity market benchmarks BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 were staring at a negative start on Wednesday, a day before weekly F&O expiry. Today, markets are likely to react to India’s fourth quarter GDP growth data which slowed to 4.1 per cent as the omicron variant hampered economic activity while the war in Ukraine worsened fuel and food inflation. Nifty futures were trading 32 points or 0.2 per cent down at 16,528 on Singaporean Exchange. In the previous session, BSE Sensex ended 359 points or 0.64% lower at 55,566, NSE Nifty 50 settled 0.46% down at 16,584. Technical analysts say that the near term uptrend status of Nifty remains intact. “The present consolidation movement or minor downward correction could continue for the next 1-2 sessions, which is likely to prepare a base for another round of sharp upmove in Nifty for the near term. The next upside levels to be watched around 16900-17000,” Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities, said.
