Pre-Market: Flat opening likely

Markets are likely to see a flat to positive start on the back of positive global cues. Early indicator, SGX Nifty was flat, down a point at 6,834.

According to an Angel broking report, the trend deciding level for the day is 22,732 / 6,810 levels. If Niftytrades above this level during the first half-an-hour of trade then we may witness a further rally  up to 22,828 – 22,891/6,833 – 6,849 levels. However, if Nifty trades below  22,732/6,810 levels for the first half-an-hour of trade then it may correct  22,669 – 22,574/6,795 – 6,771 levels.

In Asia shares were supported on Tuesday after Wall Street stocks extended gains into a fifth day, though investors continued to see tensions in Ukraine as a threat to risk appetite.

Japan’s Nikkei share average opened up 0.5 percent. MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was almost flat in early trade, but not far from a six-month high hit earlier this month.

Overnight, US stocks advanced modestly on Monday in subdued trading as investors showed hesitation in the wake of a strong rally last week and before a slew of key earnings releases this week.

Monday’s gain marked the S&P 500’s fifth straight climb, its longest winning streak since October. The Nasdaq also scored its fifth straight gain on Monday.

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 0.25 percent, to end at 16,449. The S&P 500 gained 0.38 percent, to close at 1,872. The Nasdaq Composite added 0.64 percent, to finish at 4,122.
