Market Headstart: Nifty50 seen opening lower; SBI, Bharti Airtel in focus

Trends on SGX Nifty indicate a negative opening for the broader index in India, with a 17 points loss or 0.14 percent. The Nifty futures were trading around 12,077-level on the Singaporean Exchange.

The Nifty50 is expected to open lower on December 5 following a muted trend seen in other Asian markets. Markets picked up momentum on signs that the United States and China were on track for a preliminary trade deal, but the gains remain capped.

The fluid situation around Sino-US trade negotiations has cast a pall on financial markets heading into the Christmas, with major economies grappling under the weight of weak exports, investments and corporate profits, said a Reuters report.

Analysts warn that more market turbulence is possible as the Sino-US negotiations are very fluid, added the report.
