Sensex is expected to open lower on Tuesday after hitting record high in the previous session as Asian markets remained tepid in the early trade. At 7:50 am, SGX Nifty was trading at 11,091.50, down 7.50 points or 0.07 per cent.
In Asia, Japan’s Nikkei bounced 0.4 per cent as a pullback in the yen eased concerns about earnings pressure on exporters. Moves elsewhere were marginal with MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan barely changed.
On Wall Street, a rally in tech stocks made up for an otherwise dull day on Wall Street where the Dow eased 0.06 per cent, while the S&P 500 gained 0.18 per cent and the Nasdaq 0.28 per cent.
