Domestic equity market benchmarks BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 were set to open in the positive territory on Friday, taking cues from their global peers. Nifty futures were ruling at 14,526, up 197.50 points or 1.38 per cent on Singaporean Exchange. In the last two days of market crash, investors have lost more than Rs 7 lakh crore on the back of muted sentiment amid rising COVID-19 cases in the country. The market capitalisation of BSE-listed companies declined by Rs 7,00,591.47 crore to Rs 1,98,75,470.43 crore in two days. According to a technical analyst, the short term trend of Nifty continues to be weak. “A decisive move below 14300 levels could drag towards the next lows of 14000 levels in the near term,” said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities. “This support is a mid part of long bull candle of 1st Feb (budget day move) and also 20 period weekly EMA. Any upside bounce from here is expected to find resistance at 14500 levels,” he added.
