BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 were eyeing a positive opening on Friday, as indicated by trends on SGX Nifty. Nifty futures surged in trade, rising 23 points to 17852 on Singaporean Exchange. In today’s trade, BSE Sensex is likely to hit the crucial 60,000 level. “Nifty has formed a strong bullish breakout candle and has consistently maintained higher bottom series formation, which supports further uptrend from current levels. For day traders, 17800-17750-17720 would be key support levels. On the other hand, 17900-17950-17990 could act as a major resistance level in the short run. Contra traders can take a long bet between 17750-17720 with a strict 16910 support stop loss,” Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Equity Research (Retail), Kotak Securities, said.
