Nifty futures on the Singapore Exchange traded 25 points, or 0.16 per cent, higher at 15,334.50, signaling that Dalal Street was headed for a positive start on Friday. After the US Fed announced a 75 basis point hike, the domestic equity market fell for the fifth consecutive day today. Nifty hit a 52-week low of 15,335.10, while the Sensex also hit a low of 51,425.48 during the last session. Sensex ended lower by over 1,000 points. Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities, said the sharp weakness of Thursday below the crucial support (15,600) indicates a significant downside breakout in the market. “One may expect the Nifty to slide down to the next lows of around 15,000-14,800 in the near term. Any upside bounce from here could be a sell-on-rise opportunity.”
