GIFT Nifty trends show that the Indian index as a whole is off to a poor start, down 119.50 points, or 0.54 percent. The 21,948 mark was the focal point of the Nifty futures trade.

US Market

US stocks fluctuated on Thursday due to the impact of a strong economy and Federal Reserve policy. Benchmark Treasury yields climbed and gold gained strength due to Middle East turmoil. All three major US stock indices, including the Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500, and Nasdaq Composite, experienced wavering performance, with the chip sector’s weakness causing the Nasdaq to decline the most. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 22.07 points, the S&P 500 lost 11.09 points, and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 81.87 points.

Asian Market

Asian markets fell on Friday, following Wall Street’s overnight losses and losing gains from the previous day, with Japan’s benchmark Nikkei 225 and Kospi falling by 2.7% and 1.7% respectively.


Oil prices fell in early trade due to US jobs data suggesting higher interest rates and easing Middle East tensions, while the market largely ignored sanctions on Venezuela and Iran. Brent futures and U.S. crude prices fell 0.3% to $86.88 and $82.48, respectively.
