As discussed in our weekly meeting last Saturday, American markets again hit record highs on Friday after FED Reserve chairman Jerome Powell announced the tapering of economic support will be done only by end of 2021. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 242.68 points, or 0.69%, to 35,455.8, the S&P 500 gained 39.37 points, or 0.88%, to 4,509.37 and the Nasdaq Composite added 183.69 points, or 1.23%, to 15,129.50.
The US economic recovery is on track to return to a strong labor market, and the central bank could begin to withdraw its stimulus measures by year-end, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said Friday. But the Fed leader stressed that there was no hurry to raise the benchmark lending rate in response to temporary inflation pressures.
Asian markets started the week higher and the dollar was not far off two-week lows after Powell struck a more dovish tone than some investors expected in his long-awaited speech. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan rose 0.32 percent, and Japan's Nikkei edged up 0.9 percent.
Trends on the SGX Nifty indicate a huge gap up opening at around 16800 which could see some more profit booking at higher levels. However, if the levels are sustained after profit booking, we could see the Nifty closing at another all-time high.
