MARKET COMMENTARY

Oct-28-2021 08:37

Indian benchmark indices are expected to start the day on captious note on Thursday as trends on SGX Nifty indicate a positive opening for the index in India with a 17-points gain.

Further, expiry of the October F&O series, along with the on-going corporate results season, is expected to keep the secondary markets volatile on Thursday.

On the result front, around 150 companies including Bajaj Finserv, CarTrade Tech, DLF, InterGlobe Aviation, JK Tyre, Marico, NTPC, Tata Power, SBI Card, and Westlife Development are slated to report their Q2 results today.

On the global front, The Nasdaq ended little changed on Wednesday, boosted by gains in Microsoft and Google parent Alphabet on the heels of their quarterly results, but a drop in oil prices and a pullback in Treasury yields weighed on cyclical sectors and pulled the S&P 500 lower.
