Globals markets tumbled as oil prices kept increasing and this has increased the concerns of increasing inflation. Oil prices reached a three-year peak on Monday after OPEC+ confirmed it would stick to its current output policy as demand for petroleum products rebounds, despite pressure from some countries for a bigger boost to production.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 102.30 points, or 0.30%, at 34,402.29, the S&P 500 was up 6.90 points, or 0.16%, at 4,359.53, and the Nasdaq Composite was down 37.51 points, or 0.26%, at 14,509.17. Tech stocks saw profit booking and Nasdaq was still down.
Shares in Asia-Pacific fell in Tuesday morning trade following overnight losses on Wall Street. In Japan, the Nikkei 225 dropped 3.39 percent. South Korea's Kospi shed 2.57 percent. The Hang Seng index in Hong Kong dropped 1.42 percent. Shares in Australia also slipped, with the S&P/ASX 200 down 1 percent. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan traded 1.29 percent lower. Markets in mainland China remain closed on Tuesday for the holidays.
With a major sell-off in global markets, we will see a gap-down opening in Nifty today. But with FIIs & DIIs buying in the market yesterday, I feel they don't have an opportunity to book profits and hence, might control the fall in the market.
The Reserve Bank of India on Monday gave a license to the Rs 6,000 crore National Asset Reconstruction Company Ltd (NARCL), a move that will help kickstart operations of the bad bank.
