The Indian indices are down following the fall in the US markets on Friday

Sensex and Nifty 50 have begun the week on a weak note. Sensex is trading at 58,106 and is down 0.35%. Nifty is trading at 17,322 and is down 0.28 per cent. The Indian indices are down following the fall in the US markets on Friday and in the Asians early morning today.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average tumbled about 272 points on Friday to close the week below 35,000 at 34,607.72. The movement in the Dow this week could be crucial in determining the Indian indices. The Dow could be vulnerable to test 34,200-34,000 this week if it fails to rise back above 35,000. In such a scenario, Sensex and Nifty can witness a corrective fall this week.

Futures: The Nifty September Futures contract fell to a low of 17,264 and has bounced-back well from there. It is currently trading at 17,330. Resistance is at 17,370 which can cap the upside. The contract can reverse lower and fall to 17,300-17,250 again. As long as the contract trades below 17,370, the chances of it extending the downside to 17,220-17,200 cannot be ruled out.
