SGX Nifty Up 63 Points; Indicates Firm Opening for Indian Stock Markets
Fri, 18 Jun SGX Nifty

The SGX Nifty opened on a positive note today.

At 8:05 am, it was trading up by 63 points, or 0.4% higher at 15,756 levels.

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

Asian stock markets are trading on a mixed note today after a rally in US technology shares and Treasuries, as investors unwound some of this year's dominant reflation trades.

In China, shares fluctuated after US regulators proposed a ban on products from Huawei Technologies Co. and four other Chinese electronics companies.

The Hang Seng and the Nikkei is up 0.5% and 0.3%, respectively. The Shanghai Composite is trading down by 0.3%.

In US stock markets, Wall Street was broadly under pressure on hawkish signals from the US Federal Reserve, even as US technology stocks notched gains.

The US dollar hit a two-month high and long-dated Treasury yields whipsawed, tumbling after initially spiking on Wednesday's surprise move from the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates at a much faster pace than expected.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 210 points or 0.6%.
