SGX Nifty Plunges 158 Points; Indicates Gap-Down Opening for Indian Stock Markets
Fri, 5 Mar SGX Nifty | Yash Vora, TM Team

The SGX Nifty opened on a negative note today.

At 8:10 am, it was trading down by 158 points, or 1.1% lower at 14,912 levels.

Trends on SGX Nifty indicate a gap-down opening for Indian stock markets.

Asian stock markets are trading on a negative note today as rising US Treasury yields again rattled equity investors while hoisting the dollar to a three-month high, which in turn dragged the Japanese yen to an eight-month trough.

China restored its annual economic growth target, setting it at above 6%, and pledged to create more jobs in cities than last year, as the world's second-biggest economy emerged from a year disrupted by the effects of Covid-19.

The Nikkei is trading down by 1.7% while the Hang Seng is down 2.1%. The Shanghai Composite is trading lower by 1.3%.

In US stock markets, Wall Street's main indexes dropped sharply on Thursday after Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell disappointed some investors by not indicating that the Fed might step up purchases of long-term bonds to hold down longer-term interest rates.

The 10-year Treasury yield jumped back above 1.5% following Powell's comments. The benchmark rate had stabilized earlier this week after a spike to 1.6% last week amid higher inflation expectations.
