Indian markets are today getting weak positive cues from Asian markets. Most of the Asian markets have opened on a mixed note in spite of generally positive cues from the European and US markets. The US markets ended slightly in green yesterday on the news of Greek austerity deal being concluded. The major European Markets ended in green yesterday after Greek finally managed to pull through an austerity deal.
The global markets have not responded warmly to the passage of Greek austerity deal as much still needs to be done before the crisis is finally fixed. The Indian Index of Industrial Production data is due to come out today, but this is not likely to have any significant impact on the markets. The global liquidity continues to fuel Indian markets as FIIs pour in money . It won't be therefore too much of a surprise if both Sensex and Nifty manage to break new levels in the coming days. However any adverse global or domestic development is as likely to reverse the bullish trend in the high Beta Indian markets.
