Global Markets updates

GIFT Nifty

Trends in the GIFT Nifty imply a flat morning for India’s wider market, which has gained 8 points. The Nifty futures were trading near the 22,120 mark.

US Markets

The S&P 500 closed marginally higher on Tuesday, as investors looked at a mixed bag of earnings from major U.S. corporations and analysed comments from Federal Reserve policymakers for hints about the Fed’s first expected interest rate decrease.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained by 141.24 points, or 0.37 percent, to 38,521.36. The S&P 500 rose 11.42 points, or 0.23 percent, to 4,954.23, while the Nasdaq Composite rose 11.32 points, or 0.07 percent, to 15,609.00.

Asian Markets

Asian markets were trading higher on Wednesday morning, with the Kospi up over 2% and the Nikkei trading modestly higher.

Dollar

The dollar fell against major currencies on Tuesday, a day after reaching its highest level in nearly three months, as good economic data and Federal Reserve policymakers’ hawkish stance on interest rates boosted the US currency.

The dollar index, which measures the US currency against six others, lost 0.24 percent to 104.19 after reaching 104.60 on Monday, its highest level since November 14.

Gold Prices

Gold rose on Tuesday following a drop in the US dollar and Treasury yields, as traders waited for comments from numerous Federal Reserve officials this week to determine the anticipated pace of interest rate decreases this year.

Spot gold climbed 0.6 percent to $2,035.89 per ounce, after hitting its lowest level since January 25 in the previous session. US gold futures closed 0.4 percent higher at $2051.4.

Crude

Brent and US crude futures originally rose by more than $1 per barrel on Tuesday after the US Energy Department said crude oil production will expand less than expected, but then lost some of their gains amid rumours of a possible long cease-fire in the Gaza War.

Brent crude prices closed at $78.59 a barrel, up 60 cents (0.77 percent), while US West Texas Intermediate crude futures rose 53 cents (0.73 percent) to settle at $73.51.
