Domestic stock market indices, BSE Sensex and Nifty were staring at a negative start on Monday, as suggested by trends on SGX Nifty in early trade. Nifty futures were trading 175.50 points or 1.11 per cent lower at 15,574.50 on Singaporean Exchange. In the previous session, BSE Sensex ended flat at 52,344.45, while the Nifty 50 index settled down at 15,683. Chart patterns suggest indecisiveness between bulls and bears. However, technical analysts believe that in the medium term the texture of the benchmark indices is still bullish and likely to continue in the short run. “The texture of the chart suggests 15400/51800 should be the sacrosanct level for the bulls and as long as its trading above the same, uptrend is likely to continue up to 15800-15900/52600-52850 levels,” said Shrikant Chouhan, Executive Vice President, Equity Technical Research at Kotak Securities.
