Indian stock market: The domestic equity market indices, Nifty 50 and Sensex, are expected to open higher following positive global market cues amid improved sentiment.

Asian markets traded higher, while the US stock market ended with gains overnight led by technology and banking stocks.

Investors will watch out for key macroeconomic data and corporate earnings for further stock market triggers.

On Monday, the Indian stock market indices extended gains for the second consecutive session tracking positive global cues amid easing concerns over geopolitical tensions in West Asia.

The Sensex rallied 560.29 points, or 0.77%, to close at 73,648.62, while the Nifty 50 settled 189.40 points, or 0.86%, higher at 22,336.40.

“The buoyancy in equity markets continued due to strong global cues as buying was seen across the board on the back of risk-on sentiment. Although geopolitical tension in West Asia last week plundered global assets, the absence of any fresh eruption of conflict between Israel and Iran also soothed the market sentiment, which triggered massive buying for the second straight session. The sharp fall in crude oil prices, currency and gold also resulted in a boost for equity assets," said Prashanth Tapse, Senior VP (Research), Mehta Equities Ltd.
