Nifty futures on the Singapore Exchange traded 19 points, or 0.11 per cent, lower at 17,949, signaling that Dalal Street was headed for a negative start on Thursday.
The consistent buying by FIIs, positive Asian cues and fall in oil prices helped the market reach a nearly four-and-a-half-month high in the previous session. Technology, banking and financial services, FMCG, and select metal and pharma stocks aided the market rally. The benchmark indices maintained an uptrend for the seventh consecutive session as the BSE Sensex climbed 418 points to 60,260, while the Nifty50 rose 119 points to 17,944.

“Consistent participation by FIIs is the backbone of the current rally in the domestic market. This reversal in the FII trend is owed to the resilience showcased by the Indian economy even as inflation continues to plague the western markets,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.

Declining commodity and oil prices also instilled confidence in foreign investors, while western markets were weak ahead of the release of the minutes of the US Federal Reserve Open Market Committee meeting, he added.
