GIFT Nifty

The GIFT Nifty trends suggest a positive opening for the broader index in India.

US Markets

Wall Street’s three major indexes notched record closes on Wednesday with the benchmark S&P 500 and the Nasdaq both advancing more than 1 percent, after a smaller-than-expected rise in consumer inflation bolstered investors’ hopes for interest rate cuts by the Federal Reserve.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 349.89 points, or 0.88 percent, to 39,908.00 while the S&P 500 gained 61.47 points, or 1.17 percent, at 5,308.15. The Nasdaq Composite advanced 231.21 points, or 1.4 percent, to 16,742.39, Reuters reported.

Asian Markets

Asian stock markets rallied on Thursday, buoyed by Wall Street’s surge to all-time peaks overnight after a milder US inflation report raised expectations the Federal Reserve will deliver two interest rate cuts this year.

MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan climbed 1.5 percent. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng and Australia’s stock benchmark each rallied about 1.6 percent, according to a Reuters report.
