Nifty futures were trading 19.50 points or 0.12 per cent up at 15,715 on Singaporean Exchange, suggesting a gap-up start for BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 on Thursday, a day of weekly futures & option (F&O) expiry. In the previous session, Sensex ended in red at 52,306 while the 50-stock NSE Nifty settled at 15,686. Today, the major trigger for markets is annual general meeting of Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL). Analysts expect high volatility in domestic markets on the back of scheduled monthly expiry of the June month contracts and RIL AGM. “We’re currently seeing a time-wise correction in the market and it’s likely to end soon. We reiterate our advice to continue with the “buy on dips” approach until we see some sign of exhaustion or trend reversal,” Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking Ltd, said.
