Nifty futures were trading half a per cent down at 15,660 on Singaporean Exchange on Friday, indicating a gap-down start for BSE Sensex and Nifty 50. In the previous session, headline indices ended the weekly expiry session in the negative territory, falling nearly one per cent, each. Investors would react to TCS (Tata Consultancy Services) numbers. Analysts suggest keeping a check on naked leveraged positions and wait for clarity. “Investors, on the other hand, should not read much into the intermediate correction and continue with the buy on dips approach in fundamentally sound counters with a long term view,” said Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking.
