SGX Nifty Down 12 Points; Indicates Flat Opening for Indian Stock Markets
Fri, 16 Apr SGX Nifty | Yash Vora, TM Team

The SGX Nifty opened on a negative note today.

At 8:10 am, it was trading down by 12 points, or 0.1% lower at 14,610 levels.

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

Asian stock markets are trading on a flat note today ahead of a raft of Chinese economic data.

The Nikkei is trading up by 0.1% while the Hang Seng is up 0.2%. The Shanghai Composite is trading higher by 0.4%.

China's economy grew at a record pace in the first quarter, official data showed, expanding 18.3% from a year earlier as the recovery from the coronavirus slump accelerated.

The growth in gross domestic product (GDP) was slower than the 19% forecast by economists in a Reuters poll, and followed 6.5% growth in the fourth quarter last year.

It was the strongest growth since at least 1992 when official quarterly records started.

In US stock markets, Wall Street indices jumped overnight to reach record levels as traders eyed a much stronger than expected print on consumer spending and a sharp improvement in the number of new jobless claims.

Traders digested a key print on the strength of the US consumer on Thursday, with the Commerce Department's March retail sales showing the best monthly rise in retail sales since May 2020.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained more than 300 points, or about 0.9%, to reach a record intraday and closing high and break above the 34,000 level. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq also rose to reverse declines from a day earlier, with tech stocks leading both indexes higher by more than 1%.

US stock futures are trading lower today, suggesting Wall Street could see muted trading today after reaching fresh records overnight.

Dow futures are trading down by 26 points while Nasdaq futures are down by 47 points.
