Indian equity markets are likely to open in the red as trends in the SGX Nifty indicated at a negative opening for benchmark indices in India with a loss of 85 points. In the previous session, the BSE Sensex fell 652 points to 59,646, while the NSE Nifty 50 slipped 198 points to 17,758 and formed a bearish Engulfing pattern on the daily charts. “17,300-17,600 zone would provide a cushion in Nifty next week while a rebound towards the 17,850-18,100 zone may attract profit booking. It’s prudent to focus more on risk management as correction in the index usually derails the momentum even in the top-performing sectors,” said Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking.
