Indian Market:

Today being the weekly expiry, we might see some more fall and volatility in the market. However, let's look forward to some buying opportunities today.

Trends on the SGX Nifty indicate a small gap up opening, however, it might be tough to sustain given that there are no big results coming today. However, let's look forward to results from Reliance & ICICI this weekend to get some cues on how the Nifty could move next week.
