BOR: Market Outlook: Nifty will have negative opening today on account of weak global cues.

Market Outlook: Nifty will have negative opening today on account of weak global cues. Nifty has supports at 4750-4830 and resistances are at 5000-5050. Asian markets plunged in early trading on Friday, following a brutal day on Wall Street where stocks took their deepest tumble in more than a year. Investors faced intense selling pressure amid growing fears that Europe's debt crisis could spread around the world. An unexpected increase in US jobless claims also added to the pessimism. The market seems to be a bit jittery as of now and investors should wait for some more consolidation before taking any fresh positions.
