The Indian benchmark indices, like its Asian peers, are in the green today. Both the Nifty 50 and the Sensex spot indices opened with a gap-up and have been moving higher.

The Hang Seng and the Shanghai composite indices are trading higher by 1.7 per cent and 0.3 per cent, respectively.

The market breadth of the Nifty 50 index clearly shows positive market sentiment as 33 out of the 50 stocks in the index have gained today so far. Like the benchmarks, the mid-cap and the small-cap indices too have gained. Among the sectoral indices, except the Nifty IT (down by 0.1 per cent) and the Nifty Pharma (down by 0.7 per cent), all other indices are in the green. The top performers are the Nifty private bank index and the Nifty financial services index, up by 2.3 per cent and 2.2 per cent, respectively. As the broader market sentiment looks bullish, the volatility has eased by about 2.5 per cent to 19.5 levels.
