MARKET LIVE: Sensex declines 100 pts in pre-open, Nifty tops 15,000

LIVE market updates: The benchmark indices may slide lower at open on Monday after the SGX Nifty climbed off its early highs. Global cues and stock-specific developments are expected to remain the key market triggers although Brent crude, rupee, and investment trend of foreign institutional investors would also influence trading sentiment.

In commodities, oil prices were aided by tightening supplies and freezing weather, giving Brent gains of 21 per cent for the year so far. Early Monday, Brent crude futures were up 43 cents at $63.34 a barrel.
