GIFT Nifty

Trends on GIFT Nifty indicate a negative opening for Indian indices.

US Markets

US stocks eked out modest gains on Friday and all three indexes posted another weekly advance as investors parsed comments from Federal Reserve officials and looked ahead to crucial inflation data next week. The S&P 500 and the Dow were modestly higher, and the Nasdaq ended essentially unchanged. All three indexes were up for the week with the blue-chip Dow nabbing its largest Friday-to-Friday percentage advance since mid-December.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 125.08 points, or 0.32 percent, to 39,512.84. The S&P 500 gained 8.6 points, or 0.16 percent, to 5,222.68. The Nasdaq Composite dropped 5.40 points, or 0.03 percent, to 16,340.87, Reuters reported.

Asian Markets

Asian shares crept to 15-month highs on Monday in a week where inflation figures could make or break hopes for earlier U.S. rate cuts, while Chinese activity data will test optimism about a sustained recovery in the world’s No. 2 economy. MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan edged up 0.2 percent, after rallying for three weeks straight. Japan’s Nikkei was flat, still saddled with speculation further losses for the yen could lead the Bank of Japan to raise rates in the next few months, according to a Reuters report.
