The Indian markets are expected to tread with caution on the week's last session in run up to the release of FY 2018 GDP estimates. The estimates will be released on Friday at 5.30 pm. On Thursday, benchmark Sensex had reversed a three-session fall to close at 33,970 after the government moved forward on its bank recapitalisation programme. Investors also took heart from upbeat macro indicators and firm global cues, brokers said. Market sentiment was bolstered after a monthly survey showed the Indian services sector returned to marginal growth in December as new orders broadly stabilised.
