Domestic equity market benchmarks BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 were likely to open on a flat note with a positive bias on Wednesday, as suggested by trends on SGX Nifty. Nifty futures were trading 19 points or 0.13 per cent up at 14,764 on Singaporean Exchange. Today, all eyes will be on RBI MPC outcome scheduled at 10 AM. According to an analyst, the short term trend of Nifty remains range bound. “As per the present set up, one may expect Nifty to retest the crucial overhead resistance around 14880 levels in the short term, before showing another round of weakness from the highs,” said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities. He also added that a sustainable move above 14900 could open a sharp upside for the market.
