After ending flat in the previous session, BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 are looking to open in the negative territory on Tuesday. In the previous session, S&P BSE Sensex ended 63 points lower at 48,718 while the Nifty 50 index closed at 14,634. Trends on SGX Nifty were hinting at a gap-down start for the domestic market indices. Technical analysts believe that if Nifty 50 gets past 14,700 level and stay above it, it may move towards the target of 15,100. “If we break 14400, we could slip further to 14100,” said Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments.
