Nifty futures were trading at 14,856, up 110 points or 0.75 per cent, on Singaporean Exchange, suggesting a gap-up opening for BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 on the first trading day of FY22. Investors will continue to watch rising COVID-19 cases, ongoing vaccination drive, oil prices, rupee movement against US dollar and other global cues. The market weakness of Wednesday has not impacted much on the short term uptrend status of the market, says Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities. “We are not expecting any major weakness from here and any further decline is likely to form a higher bottom around 14600-14500 and that could eventually pull the market towards the hurdle of 14900 again. Immediate support is placed at 14620,” he added.
