Market Headstart: Nifty seen opening flat; Bharti Airtel, HUL top buys

Trends on SGX Nifty indicate a flat opening for the broader index in India, with a 24 points loss or 0.21 percent. The Nifty futures were trading around 11,285-level on the Singaporean Exchange.

The Nifty50 is expected to open flat on October 14, but the trend should favour bulls as most of the Asian markets are trading with positive bias as signs of progress in the Sino-US trade standoff boosted risk appetite.

The sentiment was boosted when US President Donald Trump outlined the first phase of a deal to end a trade war with China and suspended a threatened tariff hike though officials on both sides said much more work needed to be done, said a Reuters report.

The S&P BSE Sensex rose 246 points to 38,127 while the Nifty50 closed 70 points higher at 11,305 on October 11.
