Indian shares looked set for a positive start on Thursday, as investors are likely to pick beaten-down stocks after five days of continued selling. While the US stocks surged to record highs as chipmakers rallied, Asian shares remained cautious as the euro hovered near two-month lows on bolstered expectations of rate cuts in Europe. At 7:15 AM, the SGX Nifty futures traded 23.50 points higher at 11,296, pointing to a positive start for the Sensex and the Nifty 50.
