Expecting selloff heat in early morning deals at Indian stock market; Anuj Gupta, Vice President at IIFL Securities said, “US markets slid as investors shifted to defensive sectors and safe havens such as bonds and gold as geopolitical tensions between Washington and Russia over Ukraine flared. So, Indian markets may open on the lower side and continue to trade with high volatility as witnessed yesterday.”

Asking intraday traders to keep a watch on SGX Nifty Live index, Anuj Gupta of IIFL Securities said, “Small range of SGX Nifty today is 16,800 to 17,380 whereas broader range of SGX Nifty is 16,580 to 17,700 levels. As SGX Nifty has opened lower from its yesterday close, it is also signaling weakness in the Indian markets in early deals.”
