Note that Indian indices ended higher for the fourth straight session on Monday, on the back of positive global cues and news of de-escalation in border tensions between India and China.

US stocks rose sharply on Monday as a rebound in US services industry activity in June and expectations of a revival in China's economy boosted optimism, helping investors look past a surge in new coronavirus cases in the United States.

A slew of upbeat US data, including a record rise in monthly payrolls, has powered the Nasdaq to all-time highs and has driven the S&P 500 up roughly 44% from its March lows.

Speaking of the current stock market scenario, have a look at the chart below which shows how the BSE Sensex and the smallcap index have moved over the past one year:

The markets are coming out of the deep fall. An important driver of this rally is the increasing inflow from foreign institutional investors now that the global economies have opened the liquidity tap.

Meanwhile, shares of Infosys gained almost 4%. Shares of NIIT Technologies, Wipro, Mindtree and HCL Technologies are also trading up in the range of 2-5%.

Note that the IT sector has continued to trade in line with equity benchmarks, as the segment has escaped the worst of the coronavirus-triggered lockdowns across the world.

Shares of TCS and Infosys have rallied 38% and 45% from their March lows.

Moving on, in latest developments from the IPO space, after a long dry run, India's IPO market is finally warming up and a few offerings are lined up to hit the market in the coming days.

Specialty chemicals manufacturer Rossari Biotech's initial public offering (IPO) is likely to hit the market next week.

Meanwhile, private lender Yes Bank may come up with a follow-on public offer (FPO) later this month.

This would be the first IPO after SBI Cards & Payment Services hit the market in early March. Subsequent to that, Rossari Biotech postponed its IPO plans due to the extreme volatility in the market due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Reportedly, about 31 companies are sitting with IPO approvals from the markets regulator to raise a total of around Rs 310.6 billion.

These include asset manager UTI Asset Management, Indian Railway Finance Corporation and Bajaj Energy, among others.

UTI Asset Management Company (AMC) received regulator's go ahead last month to raise a little over Rs 30 billion through its IPO.

However, analysts say the pickup in IPO activity is going to be gradual, as companies and bankers struggle to model around uncertainties surrounding the Covid-19 outbreak and the subsequent slump in economic activities across the globe.

How the above IPOs sail through remains to be seen. Stay tuned for more updates from this space.
