Indian benchmark indices are likely to open with losses, signaled SGX Nifty on Thursday. Nifty futures traded lower at 18,050 level on the Singapore Exchange. In the previous session, BSE Sensex fell 17 points to 60,910, while NSE Nifty 50 dropped 9 points to 18,015. “Market wavered between gains and losses with investors taking their position around the flatline as mixed global cues troubled them to take a firm one-sided move. US stocks were weak as the trade deficit data suggested strength in the economy, raising concerns about the Fed’s tightening stance. However, steps toward reopening the Chinese economy increased the prospect of demand recovery,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial.
