SGX Nifty was trading 33 points or 0.2 per cent up at 17,913 on Singaporean Exchange, suggesting a positive start for BSE Sensex and Nifty 50. Investors will closely watch July-September quarter earnings, oil prices, foreign fund flows, rupee movement against US dollar, and other global cues. Analysts say that Nifty has violated key supports from a technical perspective after it closed below 17950-18000 levels. “In the process, it has not only violated a major basing pattern support, but it has also dragged lower the resistance points for the Nifty for the immediate short-term,” Milan Vaishnav, CMT, MSTA, Consulting Technical Analyst and founder, Gemstone Equity Research & Advisory Services, told Financial Express Online.
