BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 were set to open on a cautious note on Friday, as suggested trends on SGX Nifty in early trade. Nifty futures were just 7.50 points up at 15,845 on Singaporean Exchange. Chartists say that the Nifty has gone sideways and the range is between 15,400-15,900. “Unless we do not get past either level, we will not see a significant move. While the bias is on the upside and there is still room for the index to conquer 16100, a buy on dips approach is recommended,” Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments, said.
