Global Markets updates

GIFT Nifty

The GIFT Nifty, which gained 52.50 points, or 0.24 percent, suggests that the Indian index as a whole is off to a good start. The 21,745 mark was the focal point of the Nifty futures trade.

US Markets

While the Dow slightly increased ahead of two US inflation data this week that could have an impact on Federal Reserve policy, the Nasdaq fell on Monday afternoon after momentarily reaching its record closing high from November 2021.

Although it closed little lower, the benchmark S&P 500 was still just above the 5,000-point milestone that it had crossed on Friday.

This week, traders watched the Consumer Price Index (CPI) and Producer Price Index (PPI) for January to determine the likelihood of interest rate reductions. Data on retail sales, industrial production, and preliminary University of Michigan consumer sentiment are also released to the market this week.

The Nasdaq Composite dropped 42.74 points, or 0.27 percent, to 15,947.92, while the S&P 500 lost 4.12 points, or 0.08 percent, to close at 5,022.49 points. At 38,807.45, the Dow Jones Industrial Average increased by 135.76 points, or 0.35 percent.

Asian Markets

As several Asian markets, notably South Korea and Singapore, resumed trading after the Lunar New Year break, the majority of these markets saw gains.

Reuters polled experts predicted that Japan’s corporate goods price index would rise by 0.1 percent in January, but it actually jumped by 0.2 percent. This is in contrast to the updated December growth figure of 0.2 percent.

The Topix gained 1.02 percent, while Japan’s Nikkei 225 surged 1.82 percent on opening day, breaking through the 37,000 barrier and reaching 34-year highs.

Dollar

In response to investors’ anticipation of U.S. retail sales and inflation data this week, which could provide insight into the timing of the Federal Reserve’s much-anticipated interest rate reductions, the dollar saw a little increase against other major currencies on Monday.
