Will the Indian market bulls showcase a six in six performance similar to what Yuvraj Singh had done against England in T20 World Cup?
On Wednesday, Indian benchmark indices continued their northward journey for the fifth straight day. The bulls’ fairy tale is likely to continue on D-Street for the sixth straight day as well on Thursday as SGX Nifty is indicating a cheerful opening. The SGX Nifty is trading up by 84 points or 0.46% at the 18,264 level. Meanwhile, commanding attention today would be the IT stocks. Their momentum was derailed after IT bellwether TCS failed to meet the street’s expectations. However, on Wednesday, IT stock reversed its falling trend and considering Infosys and Wipro ADR witnessed a buoyant close, the momentum is likely to reignite in the IT index.
