Indian benchmark indices BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty 50 may open flat with a positive bias on Tuesday amid mixed global cues. SGX Nifty was up in green ahead of the session hinting at a flat to positive start for the domestic share market. “With no respite on the global front and a resumption of selling from foreign investors, we expect markets to remain under pressure and test the 16,800-16,900 zone in Nifty. Select pockets from FMCG, pharma and IT are showing resilience while the majority are reeling under pressure. Participants should align their positions accordingly,” said Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking.
