The Indian equity benchmarks are set to open lower on Tuesday as indicated by the Nifty Futures traded on the Singapore Exchange. The Nifty Futures on Singapore Exchange also known as SGX Nifty Futures fell 111 points or 0.7 per cent to 16,088.
Benchmark indices turned highly volatile in the last hour of trade on Monday, with the Sensex falling 86.61 points after three days of gain amid heavy selling in IT counters and weak trends in global markets.
The 30-share BSE benchmark declined 86.61 points or 0.16 per cent to settle at 54,395.23. During the day, it fell by 391.31 points or 0.71 per cent to 54,090.53.

Here are key things to know before market opens on Tuesday:
Most of the Asian markets were trading lower. Japan's Nikkei fell 1.71 per cent, Hong Kong's Hang Seng declined 0.7 per cent, South Korea's KOSPI dropped 1.15 per cent and Taiwan Weighted tumbled 2.11 per cent.
Wall Street got back to slumping Monday to kick off a week full of updates about how bad inflation is and how corporate profits are handling it.
The S&P 500 fell 1.2 per cent and gave up the majority of its gains from the prior week. The Dow Jones Industrial Average slipped 0.5 per cent, and the Nasdaq composite dropped 2.3 per cent.
Stocks of smaller companies were some of the biggest losers, with the Russell 2000 index down 2.1 per cent, as worries about a possible recession continue to dog markets. The highest inflation in four decades is pushing the Federal Reserve to hike interest rates, which puts the clamps on the economy and pushes downward on all kinds of investments.
Parts of the economy are slowing already, though the still-hot jobs market remains a notable exception.
Crude Oil and Gold Price Check
Benchmark U.S. crude oil for August delivery fell 70 cents to $104.09 a barrel Monday. Brent crude for September delivery rose 8 cents to $107.10 a barrel.

The rupee depreciated by 19 paise to close at its fresh lifetime low of 79.45 against the US dollar on Monday amid broad-based dollar demand and foreign capital outflows.
However, receding crude oil prices in the international market restricted the loss for the rupee, which posted its third straight session of decline.
