The Indian stock market is expected to open firmer on the back of positive Asian cues. However, the market movement will be more stock-specific and broader moves are likely to be volatile due to the July series expiry day in the derivatives segment.

The futures and options segment will dictate the trend during the day in the market. “There is nervousness in the market however short-covering today may take Nifty to upper-end resistance of 15900 in the short term,” a note from Kotak Securities said.
Meanwhile, certain stocks will be on the traders’ radar on the back of news flows. The biggest attraction for the day would be the listing of Tatva Chintan Pharma Chem.
