Indian shares are likely to open lower on Tuesday following losses in global markets over escalating US-China trade war. Moreover, the tension in Jammu and Kashmir over scrapping of Article 70 and continued foreign capital outflow may also weigh on the markets. Asian stocks declined after the US designated China a currency manipulator. BSE Sensex and NSE’s Nifty50 ended over 1 percent lower in the previous session over selloffs in global equities. At 7.05 AM, the SGX Nifty futures traded 81.50 points, or 0.75 percent, lower at 10,788, indicating a negative start for the Sensex and the Nifty 50.
