SGX Nifty Down 52 Points; Indicates Negative Opening for Indian Stock Markets
Fri, 23 Apr SGX Nifty | Yash Vora, TM Team

The SGX Nifty opened on a negative note today.

At 8:05 am, it was trading down by 52 points, or 0.4% lower at 14,350 levels.

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

Asian stock markets are trading on a mixed note today. The Nikkei is trading down by 0.8% while the Hang Seng is up 0.9%. The Shanghai Composite is trading higher by 0.2%.

In US stock markets, Wall Street indices ended sharply lower on Thursday, seeing the biggest one-day slide since early March, following a news report that said President Joe Biden is weighing a proposal which would nearly double the capital-gains tax for wealthy individuals.

Equities gave up modest gains to end lower after reports emerged that Biden would propose nearly doubling the capital-gains tax rate for Americans earning more than US$ 1 million a year to 39.6% from the current base rate of 20%.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said "we're still finalizing what the pay-fors look like," after being asked about the capital gains tax plan at a press briefing Thursday.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 321 points, or 0.9%, the largest one day point and percentage decline since Thursday, March 4, 2021. The Nasdaq also fell 0.9%.
