Domestic equity market benchmarks BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 gained over 3 per cent last week. Markets are likely to extend gains in the Tuesday’s session with the SGX Nifty up 92 points during the early hours of trade. A host of factors such as US President Donald Trump’s health bulletins, Supreme Court’s verdict on the interest waiver case, Angel Broking shares listing, stock-specific action, oil prices, rupee movement and other global cues, will set the market direction today. “The rebound in banking and financials is a welcome relief as other sectors, by and large, are performing well. Though the breakout above 11,300 in Nifty has again shifted the bias in the favour of bulls, we suggest maintaining a positive yet cautious approach, considering the recent volatility and upcoming events,” said Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking Ltd.
