Stocks To Watch: Biocon, Tamilnad Mercantile Bank, SBI Cards, Neuland Labs
Stocks to watch before going into trade today.
Global stocks headed for the highest level in more than two months on Thursday after Federal Reserve meeting minutes showed support for tapering interest-rate increases.
Crude dropped in anticipation of a higher-than-expected price cap on Russian oil and a rising in U.S. product stockpiles. Gold rose 0.3%, while Bitcoin rose 1.6% to trade near $16,400-level.
Domestic benchmarks indices maintained their upward movement for a second day even after paring gains from early trade. The rise in banking, metals, and oil and gas stocks were offset by decline in information technology and FMCG stocks.
Rupee dropped against the U.S. dollar to close at the day’s low, a day after it closed higher.
At 6:30 a.m., the Singapore-traded SGX Nifty -- an early barometer of India's benchmark Nifty 50 -- rose 0.25% to 18,300.
