TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

Nifty futures on the Singapore Exchange traded 18.50 points, or 0.18 per cent lower at 10,149.50 in signs that Dalal Street was headed for a muted start on Thursday.

Signs of fatigue were all over, as the index came off from the day’s high of 10,176 level and ended up forming a small bearish candle on the daily chart — the first time in six sessions. The index is trading above all of short-term moving averages and is nearing the overbought zone as suggested by the 14-day RSI of 67. Analysts said a profit-booking move looks due.
