Pre-Session: Positive opening on cards for Sensex, Nifty today

Indian benchmark indices are expected to start the day in green on Thursday tracking cautious gains by global markets, although another record daily surge in Covid-19 cases could limit the upside. Besides, weekly options expiry is likely to inject volatility into the session.

On the Covid front, India recorded its biggest-ever daily surge of 1.26 lakh Covid-19 cases in the last 24 hours, according to Worldometer.

Keeping in view the rising virus cases, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with chief ministers of states today to discuss the Covid-19 situation and the ongoing vaccination drive which will be keenly tracked by market participants.

The Nasdaq, meanwhile, dropped 0.07 per cent.

Asian equities largely tracked Wall Street’s cautious gains. Australian ASX 200 rose 1 per cent in early trading and Hong Kong's Hang Seng gained 0.8 per cent, while Japan’s Nikkei fell 0.35 per cent.
