After a fairly dull July, the Indian indices had the fortune of kicking off August on a healthy note. A combination of robust domestic fundamentals and improving external scenario sent stocks soaring on Monday. It all started in Asia, where a slowdown in China’s manufacturing sector stoked expectations of a slow tightening. Europe picked up the cues after HSBC and BNP Paribas announced stellar results, and euro-zone PMI climbed. On Wall Street, investors cheered a less than anticipated fall in manufacturing PMI, while construction spending rose unexpectedly.
The market may extend Monday's (2 August 2010) gains on firm Asian stocks. Strong sales reported by auto firms for July 2010 will keep sentiment firm. Trading of S&P CNX Nifty futures on the Singapore stock exchange indicated that the Nifty could gain 14 points at the opening bell.
