New Delhi: The domestic stock markets opened higher on Wednesday led by gains across all sectors. However, Asian shares were on edge as worries about soaring power prices fuelling inflation weighed on sentiment and drove expectations the United States would taper its emergency bond buying programme, holding the dollar at a one-year high. Trends on SGX Nifty also indicated a positive opening for the markets back home. Nifty futures were trading at 18,075.80, 67.25 points or 0.37% up on the Singapore Stock Exchange.
On Tuesday, the benchmark BSE sensex had closed 76.72 points or 0.13% higher at 60,135.78 – marking its new closing high as well. The broader NSE Nifty had surged 50.75 points or 0.28% to its all-time closing high of 17,945.95.
