Nifty today: GIFT Nifty up 45 points; here’s the trading setup for today’s session

Domestic equities opened positive on the first day of the week but soon witnessed selling pressure amid muted global cues. In today’s trade, markets will react to the inflation data, which fell to a 3-month low of 5.10% in January.

“Global cues are muted as most of the Asian markets are closed for this week on account of Lunar New Year holidays, which kept global investors on side-line. Overall we expect the market to consolidate with negative bias in the near term,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research, Motilal Oswal.

Here’s breaking down the pre-market actions:
