9:43 am : Expert quote on market opening
VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services said, "The market is set for a near-term rally. The sharp upswing in Nasdaq & S&P 500 late last week indicates near-term trend reversal. The decline in dollar index and the US 10-year bond yields, too, are positives for risk particularly in emerging markets. The beaten-down IT segment is likely to stage a good comeback assisted by short-covering. Financials, particularly the leading banks, have more room to go up assisted by delivery based investment buying. However, brent crude at $ 120 is a major macro headwind."
