Today, the benchmark indices may take hint from their global peers which moved higher after expectations of a rate cut by Federal Reserve strengthened. Another big factor affecting the investor sentiment today will be the Union government's stance on the "super-rich" tax on FPIs, which Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman yesterday said will remain undiluted.

Investors will continue to track the June quarter earnings. Reliance Industries and InterGlobe Aviation, IndiGo's parent company, are among the 27 companies scheduled to announce their results today. You can read our preview on what analysts expect from the results on our website www.businessstandard.com

Yesterday, the benchmark S&P BSE Sensex closed 0.81 per cent lower at 38,897 level. The broader Nifty50, too, ended at 11,597 mark, down 0.78 per cent amid fresh trade war concerns and mixed June quarter earnings.

Now, let's see how the global have fared overnight and they mean for Sensex and Nifty

And, MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up 0.3 per cent.

SGX Nifty is also indicating a positive start for the domestic indices.
