Good Morning Everyone to yet another brand new week!
As we discussed in our weekly meet on Saturday, I am expecting minor correction before Nifty scale new heights. Also we will look out for the inflation data keenly to understand how the market can turn in the coming days.
As I told you in the meet, US markets again closed with record highs on Friday night.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan dropped 0.1 percent amid holidays in Tokyo and Singapore. Nikkei futures traded just below Friday's close. Nasdaq futures fell 0.5% and S&P 500 futures 0.3 percent.
Trends on the SGX Nifty indicate a flat start to the week on Nifty. Infact it was down in the morning and has slightly recovered close to Friday's close.
Another thing to track in Asia has been the Delta variant which has started to spread havoc in some countries and forced more restrictions. Since India was the first to face the wrath of this variant and has already seen the worst impact, our market has been relatively unfazed by this threat of late. In fact, big states like Maharashtra are gradually relaxing restrictions which is good news for the economy and market.
