Nifty futures were trading 41.50 points or 0.23 per cent up at 18,358.50 on Singaporean Exchange, suggesting a gap-up start for BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 on weekly F&O expiry day. Amid heightened volatility, S&P BSE Sensex ended 456 points or 0.74 per cent down at 61,259 while the NSE Nifty 50 index fell 0.83 per cent to settle at 18,266. Analysts are of the view that the Nifty 50 index has completed one leg of correction, and 18150 and 18200 could act as sacrosanct support levels for the traders. “Above the same, there is a strong possibility of a quick pullback rally up to 18350-18425 levels. On the flip side, dismissal of 18150 could increase further intraday weakness up to 18080,” Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Equity Research (Retail), Kotak Securities, said.
