Market Close Highlights : European stocks rose for a second day after strong earnings from some of the region’s biggest companies, while positive economic data helped boost sentiment.

The Stoxx Europe 600 index climbed 0.6%, with the technology sector leading the advance.

Earnings are front and center of investor’s minds this week with about 180 companies — representing over 40% of the S&P 500 market value — reporting results. The focus on corporate profits comes after a rout fueled by geopolitical fears and signals the Federal Reserve will be in no rush to lower rates.

PMI data on Tuesday reinforced bets the European Central Bank is on course to start easing policy soon. Private-sector activity advanced to the highest level in almost a year, driven by a buoyant services sector and Germany’s return to growth. Barring any economic surprises, a rate cut in June is a “fait accompli," ECB Vice President Luis de Guindos said. The euro gained against the dollar.

Treasuries were steady before a flurry of bond auctions that will test investors’ appetite after yields hit the highest in 2024. A guage of the greenback was little changed.

The UK 10-year yield ticked higher after the government raised the amount of bonds it plans to sell this fiscal year by more than analysts expected, adding to what was already the second-largest gilt package on record.

Gold extended losses after its biggest daily decline in almost two years, with easing tension in the Middle East and signs the Fed will keep rates higher for longer crimping demand. Oil nudged higher as traders weighed the next steps between Israel and Iran amid signs of easing hostilities following a tit-for-tat exchange of attacks last week.

Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities, interpreted this market activity as the formation of a long-legged doji or dragonfly doji type candle pattern. He stated, "This pattern, formed after a day of upward movement, does not indicate any significant alert for bulls at the highs. Nifty has surpassed the initial barrier at 22,300 levels and is likely to face strong resistance at 22,500 levels (the opening downside gap of 15th April) in the short term."

Shetti further speculated that if Nifty manages to maintain above 22,500, the market could potentially achieve new all-time highs in the near future. (Read the full story here.)

Sensex Today Live : Six key things that changed for market overnight - Gift Nifty, Tesla shares to Reliance Q4 results

Sensex Today Live : The Indian equity market indices, Nifty 50 and Sensex, are projected to start on a positive note, buoyed by encouraging global market indicators and an uplifted mood. Asian markets exhibited an upward trend, and the US stock market concluded with overnight gains, primarily driven by technology and banking stocks.

Investors will keep a close eye on crucial macroeconomic data and corporate earnings, which could potentially influence further stock market movements.

Prashanth Tapse, Senior VP (Research) at Mehta Equities Ltd, commented, "The equity markets maintained their buoyancy, fueled by robust global cues, as widespread buying was observed due to a risk-on sentiment. Despite last week's geopolitical tensions in West Asia causing a dip in global assets, the lack of any new conflict outbreak between Israel and Iran helped soothe market sentiment, triggering substantial buying for the second consecutive session. The significant drop in crude oil prices, currency, and gold also contributed to the surge in equity assets." (Read the full story here.)

Sensex Today Live : Global peers, Gift Nifty gain, indicating strong start for Indian markets; Q4 earnings in focus

Sensex Today Live : Indian shares are set to open higher on Tuesday, tracking a rebound in global markets, while Reliance Industries will be in focus after the conglomerate beat fourth-quarter profit estimates.

India's GIFT Nifty was trading at 22,396.50, as of 08:04 a.m. IST, indicating that the Nifty 50 will open above its Monday's close of 22,336.40.

The benchmark indexes Nifty and S&P BSE Sensex extended gains for a second session in a row on Monday, tracking a rebound in global markets due to easing worries over the escalation of tensions in the Middle East.

Asian shares extended gains on Tuesday, taking cues from Wall Street as focus shifts to earnings results from U.S. tech giants in the week, while a still strong dollar pressured the Japanese yen to fresh 34-year lows.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan rose 0.5%, helped by a 1% jump in Taiwanese shares and a 0.8% advance in Hong Kong's Hang Seng index.

The Asian index rose 1% the day before on easing fears of a major escalation in the Middle East conflict, recovering some of the 3.7% losses last week. Japan's Nikkei edged up 0.1%.

Tech shares in the region cheered. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd rallied 1.5% while MSCI Asia-Pacific ex-Japan IT index jumped 0.8%. However, Chinese shares fell, with the blue chips losing 0.6%.

On Wall Street, big tech shares outperformed ahead of their quarterly results this week, sending the Nasdaq 1.1% higher.

"Odds are the earnings reports that we see over the next few weeks will be positive, but obviously there's still issues around what the Fed will do the next," said Shane Oliver, chief economist at AMP. “It's too early to say that problems in the Middle East have gone away."

Oil prices recovered some of the sharp losses overnight as investors continued to assess the situation in Middle East. Brent futures rose 0.2% to $87.16 a barrel, while U.S. crude gained 0.2% to $82.06 a barrel.

Gold prices, however, lost 1% to $2,295.9 per ounce, after slumping 2.7% overnight.
