New Delhi: The domestic stock markets started in red on Thursday, taking cues from the global markets. Global stocks eased from record peaks as a stark reminder of supply chain snags in corporate earnings reports stalled their rally, while investors also looked to whether central banks may consider tightening monetary policy earlier than thought. Trends on SGX Nifty indicated a flat opening for the markets back home. The Nifty Futures on Singapore Exchange also known as the SGX Nifty Futures rose 0.24 per cent or 43 points to 18,239.
The benchmark BSE Sensex fell 228 points to 60,915 in opening trade; while the broader NSE Nifty traded below the 18,150-mark.
