Broader markets indices S&P BSE MidCap and S&P BSE SmallCap outperformed the benchmarks. Global cues were mixed during the early hours of trade while Wall Street indices climbed in overnight trade on Friday. Factors such as corporate results, stock-specific developments, oil prices, rupee movement and other global cues will guide the stock markets in today’s session.
