BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 were likely to see a positive opening on Thursday, a day of weekly options expiry. Nifty futures surged higher in trade, rising 27.50 points or 0.18 per cent to 15,723 on Singaporean Exchange. F&O expiry, RIL AGM, along with COVID-19 vaccination pace, crude oil prices, rupee movement against US dollar and other global cues will set the tone for domestic markets today. Chartists believe that the short term trend of Nifty 50 is weak with range bound action. “The overall market breadth and broad market indices are showing resilience compared to benchmark Nifty. The present weakness is expected to be over in the next 1-2 sessions and the market could bounce up again from the lows. Immediate support is placed at 15600 levels,” Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities, said.
