Nifty futures were trading 99.50 points or 0.63 per cent lower at 15,753 on Singaporean Exchange, suggesting a gap-down opening for BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 on Monday. Analysts expect high volatility this week amid the scheduled derivatives expiry of July month contracts. In the previous week, the 30-share Sensex fell 164.26 points or 0.30 per cent. Markets will first react to the results of index heavyweights such as Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL), ICICI Bank and ITC in early trade on Monday. “The short term trend would remain positive till Nifty is holding above the support zone of 15,450, however, the recent surge in volatility warrants extra caution in the selection of stocks and trade management. We advise limiting leveraged positions and waiting for further clarity,” Ajit Mishra, VP Research. Religare Broking said.
