On Monday Indian equity benchmarks made an optimistic start tracking firm global cues. Markets extended their opening gains and are trading firm with gains of over a percent each on account of board based buying in Bankex, Energy and Realty stocks. In the afternoon session, Indian equity benchmarks were trading in fine fettle due to heavy buying in banking, metal and realty stocks. Both Sensex and Nifty are trading around 48,384 and 14,479 levels.
Most of the Asian markets were trading higher following broadly positive cues from Wall Street. The markets remain tense and cautious amid the surge in coronavirus cases in the region, particularly in Japan and India, as well as the possible related lockdowns in economic activity in several markets.
