SGX Nifty Down 86 Points; Indicates Negative Opening for Indian Stock Markets
Mon, 5 Apr SGX Nifty | Yash Vora, TM Team

The SGX Nifty opened on a negative note today.

At 8:15 am, it was trading down by 86 points, or 0.6% lower at 14,905 levels.

Trends on SGX Nifty indicate a negative opening for Indian stock markets.

Asian stock markets rose to a 1 1/2-month high after data showed a surge in US employment while short-dated US bonds came under pressure on worries the Federal Reserve may bump up interest rates sooner than it has indicated.

The Nikkei is trading up by 0.8%. Chinese stock markets and Hong Kong remained closed for trading.

In US stock markets, Wall Street indices rose on Thursday, setting record highs, on the back of the strongest manufacturing data around the world in decades and a drop in bond yields that lifted big tech shares.

US President Joe Biden's sweeping US $2.3 trillion plan to rebuild America's crumbling infrastructure added to investor enthusiasm.

The S&P 500 touched a new high as it charged past the 4,000 mark after the Institute for Supply Management said its index of national factory activity soared to its highest level in more than 37 years in March.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.5% while the Nasdaq added 1.8% to 13,480.

US exchanges were closed on Friday in observance of Good Friday.
