The Indian stock market witnessed a stellar rally with both the benchmark indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, at their all-time high levels. Strong domestic cues and the return foreign capital into Indian equities have supported the upside momentum.

The domestic equity indices are expected to open flat with a positive bias on Tuesday amid weakness in global peers. The Asian markets traded lower, while the US stock indices ended in the red overnight.

On Monday, the Indian stock market indices ended at their record closing highs, witnessing the biggest one day rise in over one year.

The Sensex surged 1,383.93 points, or 2.05%, to end at 68,865.12, while the Nifty closed 418.90 points, or 2.07%, higher at 20,686.80.

“We expect market sentiment to strengthen further as the ongoing pre-election rally is quite strong now. Given the government’s focus approach towards long-term capex across key areas, we expect BFSI, Industrials, Real Estate, Auto and Consumer Discretionary to do well going forward," said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.

Japan’s Nikkei 225 dropped 0.67%, while the Topix fell marginally. South Korea’s Kospi declined 0.55% and the Kosdaq fell 0.62%.

Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index futures pointed at a slightly stronger open.

US stock market

The US stocks ended lower on Monday amid rise in treasury yields. The S&P 500 receded, with megacaps Microsoft, Apple, Nvidia and Amazon shares falling over 1%.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 0.11% to 36,204.44, while the S&P 500 fell 0.54% to end at 4,569.78. The Nasdaq ended 0.84% lower at 14,185.49.

Treasury yields rise

US Treasury yields rose, with the benchmark 10-year yield moving off three-month lows to stand 4 basis points higher at 4.261%. The two-year US Treasury yield, which typically moves in step with interest rate expectations, rose 7 basis points to 4.633%, Reuters reported.

Oil prices

Crude oil prices fell amid skepticism over the latest OPEC decision on supply cuts and uncertainty surrounding global fuel demand outweighed the risk of supply disruptions.

US crude settled down 1.39% to $73.04 a barrel. Brent crude ended at $78.03 per barrel, down 1.08%.
