Nifty futures tumbled 220 points or 1.38 per cent to 15,716.50 on Singaporean Exchange, indicating a gap-down start for BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 on Monday. On weekly basis, NSE’s Nifty closed at a record high level, despite consolidating within the range of 15550-15950 for the sixth straight week. Asian peers were seen trading in deep sea of red in early trade on Monday, while US stock indices declined in overnight trade on Friday. “The Nifty has scope to move towards 16100 without much efforts. However, for that, support from Banks and the FMCG sector will hold key. The strategy should be to buy if Nifty corrects to 15900/15850 without hitting the levels of 16100. Traders should keep a final stop loss at 15750 for the same. On the higher side, 16000, 16100 and 16150 would be resistance levels. It is advisable to reduce long positions between 16050/16150 levels,” said Shrikant Chouhan, Executive Vice President, Equity Technical Research, Kotak Securities Ltd.
