Indian benchmark indices BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty 50 are likely to open lower on weekly F&O expiry amid weak global cues. SGX Nifty hinted at a flat negative start for domestic share market as Nifty futures traded 48 pts or 0.26% down at 18431 levels. “The recent move in the index lacks decisiveness and shows an early sign of exhaustion too however we recommend following the trend until it reverses. We’re seeing select heavyweights and midcap counters attracting buying interest while the rest are either trading in a range or witnessing pressure. We feel it’s prudent to restrict positions and focus on overnight risk management,” said Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking.
