Mohit Nigam, Head – PMS, Hem Securities:

Benchmark Indices are expected to open on a positive note as suggested by trends on SGX Nifty. Asian markets were trading mixed in early Monday trade with Nikkei trading at +2%, Taiwan and Korean Indices trading with +0.5% gain while Hang Seng trading down -1% and Chine Index trading with -0.5% loss. 

On the technical front, Nifty 50 is currently trading at a very good support zone near 17,500-17,700 and we believe markets may show some good recovery from these levels. The 18,000 level is an immediate hurdle on upside for Nifty 50.
