The Nifty50 is likely to open lower on Friday following a muted trend seen in other Asian markets. The index closed 131 points lower at 10,453 on Wednesday.

Negative global cues have weighed on Nifty futures on the Singaporean exchange as well. The SGX Nifty is trading over 70 points lower, hinting at a lower start on Friday morning here and is likely to test 10,300-mark as well.

Asia fell as global sentiment soured on issues ranging from trade worries, Italy’s 2019 budget, higher US interest rates and growth concerns in China that led to a slump in Chinese shares in the previous session, said a Reuters report.

US stocks fell more than 1 percent on Thursday as the European Commission issued a warning regarding Italy’s budget and concerns mounted over the possibility of strained relations between the United States and Saudi Arabia, further denting investors’ appetite for risk amid global trade tensions and rising interest rates, the report said.
