MARKET EYE-SGX Nifty edges higher; budget key for near term

* Nifty futures on the Singapore Exchange was 0.17
percent up. The MSCI-Asia Pacific index excluding Japan 
 was 0.07 percent higher.       
* Asian shares eased on Friday with investors turning cautious
as weak euro zone growth data presaged the G20 meeting in this
session and on Saturday in Moscow. 
* Foreign investors bought 3.21 billion rupees of stocks, while
domestic institutions sold 2.48 billion rupees of stocks on
Thursday, when the BSE index fell 0.57 percent. 
* With Q3 earnings season almost over, traders speculate over
whether the budget would be populist or pragmatic, in the
backdrop of increasing deficit.
