Nifty futures were trading 23.50 points or 0.15 per cent up at 15,765.50 on Singaporean Exchange, suggesting a gap-up start for BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 on Wednesday. Markets are likely to remain volatile this week ahead of monthly expiry and two-day US Federal Reserve meet which began Tuesday. Investors will track global cues for further market direction, stock-specific action given the earnings season in progress, oil prices and rupee movement against US Dollar. “Nifty has formed a bearish Engulfing Top-like pattern. It has repeatedly failed to cross the 15962 level. With US Fed meet and F&O expiry over the next two days, we could see heightened volatility in the markets. 15632-15824 could be the band for the Nifty over the next 1-2 sessions,” Deepak Jasani, Head of Retail Research, HDFC Securities, said.
