Indian equity markets are likely to open gap-down on Monday as trends on SGX Nifty hinted at a negative opening for benchmark indices BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty 50. The Nifty futures were trading around 16,505 levels on the Singaporean exchange ahead of today’s session. “Markets have been witnessing a rebound for the last 3 weeks however the move lacks decisiveness due to lingering challenges like global tightening due to inflation, geopolitical tension, etc. We feel Nifty would regain some strength above 16,900 however a break below 16,400 will put bears back in the game,” said Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking.
