Nifty futures were trading 28.50 points or 0.19 per cent up at 14857 on Singaporean Exchange, hinting at a muted start for BSE Sensex and Nifty on Thursday. Today, mixed global cues, weekly F&O expiry, corporate earnings, foreign fund inflows, rise in crude oil prices and other global cues may set the market direction. Due to the post Union Budget optimism, BSE market capitalisation has surged over Rs 12 lakh crore in the last three session. Technical analysts see some resistance in Nifty 50 index at 15,000 level. And expect BSE Sensex to cross 50,000 if Nifty 50 goes to 15,000.
