Indian benchmark indices are likely to open in green, hinted SGX Nifty. Amid mixed global cues, Nifty futures traded 0.27% higher at 18475 on the Singapore Exchange. In the previous session, BSE Sensex declined 104 points to 61,702, while NSE Nifty 50 fell 35 points to 18,385. “Going forward, Nifty is likely to trade within 18200-18500 range in the comparable period, and any decisive breach on either side could only dictate the near-term trend. From here on, selective stocks could outperform the market; hence, we advocate the participants to remain selective and focus on the stock-specific approach for better trading opportunities,” said Osho Krishan, Sr. Analyst – Technical & Derivative Research, Angel One.
