View on market: Stay Cautious, be with quality business:

Asian markets were headed for gains after the U.S. shares ended January on a high note as signs of cooling inflation encouraged risk appetite ahead of the Federal Reserve’s Wednesday meeting. Japanese, Australian and Hong Kong equity benchmarks edged higher. The S&P 500 rose 1.5% to close out its best month since October. The tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 index rallied 1.6% for its best month since July and strongest start to a year since 2001. Adani Enterprises Ltd., a member of the Indian benchmarks, successfully raised $2.5 billion (Rs 20,000 crore) in a closely watched follow-on equity sale Tuesday. The transaction provides some relief for Gautam Adani after allegations by short seller Hindenburg Research. At 5:30 a.m., the Singapore-traded SGX Nifty, an early indicator of India’s benchmark Nifty 50, was up 0.73% at 17,882. The yield on 10-year Treasuries declined one basis point to 3.53%. Crude price rose 1.3%, while gold was up 0.3%. Bitcoin rose 1.8% to trade around $23,100-level.
