Domestic equity market benchmarks BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 stare at a gap-up opening on Tuesday. In the previous session, headline indices corrected over 2 per cent on the back of geopolitical tensions between China and India. Market participants will react to GDP numbers, where the Indian economy shrank 23.9 per cent during the April-June quarter and eight core industries’ output which contracted 9.6 per cent in July. Besides, the Supreme Court’s verdict AGR judgment, geopolitical tensions, PMI Manufacturing data and August auto sales numbers will be keenly tracked. The implementation of the new margin norms from today will also sway market sentiments.
