Market Live Updates: Sensex opens over 200 points higher, Nifty nears 15,300; all sectors in the green
Stock Market Live Updates: Indian indices opened higher on Tuesday following gains in Asian peers after Wall Street rose in overnight trade helped by a retreat in US Treasury yields.

“Two trends – one positive and one negative- need close monitoring. The negative is the likely huge shortfall in government revenues and its potential impact on macro stability. GST compensation to states is likely to be around Rs 2.5 trillion against the compensation cess estimated at Rs 1trillion in the budget leaving a gap of around Rs 1.5 trillion. This will have implications for deficit, borrowings and macro stability. But the problem can be mitigated if lockdowns are lifted soon. There is room for optimism on this front since fresh cases have fallen to 1.95 lakh cases during the last 24 hrs and recoveries are at 3.25 lakhs. So, anticipating progressive unlocking starting June, the Indian market is likely to join the current risk-on in global markets. Nifty is moving towards an all-time high. Nifty bank index has more room on the upside”

Metal prices may see more correction but long-term trend remains bullish: S&P Global Platts
Paul Bartholomew of S&P Global Platts on Monday said metal prices could see more correction but the long-term trend remains bullish. He said, “If commodity prices rise too high then that’s perhaps a sign of economic recovery. So the market has become a lot more cautious, sitting on the sidelines now for about a week and we saw iron ore dropped to about USD 200 per tonne last Friday.” “However, I suspect it’s just a bit of a pause and look at fundamentals; I still think there is a lot of bullishness sitting beneath and I don’t think this is a start of a big correction,” he said.
