New Delhi: The domestic stock markets are likely to trade cautiously on Tuesday taking cues from the Asian markets. Asian shares dropped and the safe-haven dollar held firm, as a global energy crunch fuelled inflation fears, clouding investor sentiment before the U.S. corporate earnings season. Trends on SGX Nifty indicate a negative opening for the markets back home. Nifty futures were trading at 17,867, 64 points or 0.36% lower on the Singapore Stock Exchange.
On Monday, the benchmark BSE sensex had jumped 381.23 points or 0.64% to close at 60,059.06, just shy of its lifetime high; while the broader NSE Nifty rose 104.85 points or 0.59% to hit fresh closing peak of 17,895.20.
