Nifty futures were trading 104 points or 0.66 per cent higher at 15,878 on Singaporean Exchange, suggesting a strong start for BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 on Monday. In the previous session, the 30-share Sensex slipped 66 points or 0.13 per cent to end at 52,586, while the Nifty 50 dropped 15 points or 0.10 per cent to close at 15,763. This week, stock markets will take cues from macroeconomic data, quarterly earnings, and RBI interest rate decision. Analysts say that the short term trend of Nifty remains choppy. “Present lack of strength to sustain the highs could open another round of small weakness in the early part next week, before showing a sustainable upside bounce from the lows. The crucial lower supports to be watched at 15600 levels,” Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities, said.
