“The two big looking triggers are the complexion of the 100-day priorities of the new government and the Union Budget measures. The two big political developments will be the choice of the Speaker of the lower house of parliament, the Lok Sabha and the announcement of the BJP President” said Ajay Bagga, Banking and Market Expert.

He further added, “PSU companies, banks, capital goods, infrastructure, railways, defence stocks remain the preferred bets in the Indian markets”.

In the broader market on the NSE, all indices, including Nifty 100, Nifty Next 50, Nifty Midcap, and Nifty Smallcap, showed gains in early trading on Tuesday.

In the Asian markets, stocks advanced, driven by gains in US technology giants, although Chinese equities faced pressure from a deepening housing slump in May. Australia’s central bank is expected to maintain its benchmark rate at 4.35 per cent, while US markets prepare for retail sales data and Federal Reserve speeches ahead of Wednesday’s holiday.

The European stock markets fluctuated between gains and losses as concerns around the upcoming French election sent equity volatility to the highest since October. France’s Index gained nearly 1 per cent while Germany’s Index advanced 0.4 per cent.

In the commodity market, Gold slid 0.5 per cent to USD 2320/ounce as traders look for signs from US policymakers and economic data that could shed light on the timing of Federal Reserve interest rate cuts.
The Brent crude gained 2 per cent to a 1-month high above USD 84/bbl (Barrel) on the hope of rising global demand and OPEC+ agreed to extend supply cuts.
