The bull run in the Indian market continued for a seventh consecutive session on Monday, and shows no sign of slowing down today as well.

The Indian markets enjoyed a strong run in the last trading with Nifty and Sensex both closing at a fresh record high. On Tuesday morning, the SGX Nifty is indicating the bull’s buying spree may see no signs of abating as SGX Nifty is trading up by 81 points at 18,567.50 levels. So, it is highly likely that we see a fresh all-time high at the opening bell. Certainly, with the kind of movement we are witnessing in the benchmark indices lately, it's too good to be true! Commanding attention in today’s session would be Nifty FMCG as Nestle and Hindustan Unilever are scheduled to report their earnings today and hence, Nifty FMCG could be in limelight.
