Sensex and Nifty could be looking at a negative start on Wednesday with the SGX Nifty trading 50 points lower during the early hours of trade. Both the benchmark indices slipped into the red on Tuesday on the back of the brewing tension between India and China in Eastern Ladakh. Broader markets fell more than the benchmarks, which analysts say, hints at profit booking. Further, stock markets are expected to closely watch the India-China border dispute and the developments around a coronavirus vaccine. Volatility has now risen to sit close to 23 levels.
