Trends on SGX Nifty indicate a positive opening for the index in India with a 40 points gain.

Indian markets could open mildly higher following largely positive Asian markets today, and higher US markets on Monday, said Deepak Jasani, Head-Retail, HDFC Securities.


Gaurav Udani, CEO & Founder, ThincRedBlu Securities, “The Nifty is expected to open flat to positive at 18,165 , up by 40 points. After positive opening yesterday Nifty corrected and tested 17,960 level. Trades are suggested avoid taking long positions until there is a bullish confirmation. Nifty has support in 17,960- 18,000 range and resistance at 18,280-18,320 range.“


Mohit Nigam, Head - PMS, Hem Securities said, "The benchmark Indices are expected to open on a positive note as trends on SGX nifty indicate a gap-up opening with 40 points gain. Stocks in Asia Pacific rose in Tuesday trade after major indexes on wall street rose to record closing highs stateside. The US markets ended higher on Monday on optimism about more upbeat earnings reports, with a slew of big-name companies due to report their quarterly results this week.

"Oil prices reached multi year highs on Monday before steadying because of tight global supply. "

Nifty broke a 4-day losing streak and ended marginally in the positive on October 25 helped by Banks. At close, Nifty was up 0.06 percent or 10.5 points at 18,125.4.

Nifty recovered well from the morning weakness. In the process it made a lower intra day low compared to the previous session but closed higher. It turned up from the low of 17,968 – close to the support level of 17,948. Selling pressure in some index heavyweights is counterbalanced by buying in some other sectors. However the broader market continues to flounder and the advance decline ratio is deeply in the negative. Nifty has a chance to stabilize and bounce up though a broader market recovery seems a couple of days away, added Jasani.

Inox Winds (Company’s arm Inox Wind Infrastructure Services (IWISL) has inked a share purchase agreement to sell its entire equity stake in six firms to wholly-owned subsidiary Resco Global Wind Services);

Tata Power (Company crossed 1,000 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations mark in India) and,

US stocks finish at record high on Monday

US stock benchmarks finished at, or near, record highs Monday, ahead of a heavy slate of earnings for the week. Investors are counting on the prospects of slowing growth to keep the Federal Reserve from tightening monetary policy by too much down the road.
