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

The dollar rose in early trading on Monday, adding to a third week of gains as hawkish comments by Federal Reserve officials and geopolitical tensions bolstered the appeal of the greenback. Shares fell in Japan and Australia, along with US equity futures. The S&P 500 Index declined Friday and slid for a second week. Futures contracts for Hong Kong slid earlier. Meanwhile, the yield on 10-year Treasuries advanced to 3.81%. Crude prices were trading around $83-mark, while Bitcoin was trading around 24,000-level. At 7:50 a.m., the Singapore-traded SGX Nifty, an early indicator of India’s benchmark Nifty 50, was up 0.17% at 17,966. Both domestic benchmark indices—Sensex and Nifty—closed 0.5% lower on Friday, snapping a three-day rally, as banking, IT and pharma stocks came under pressure. The Indian rupee weakened against the U.S. dollar as the greenback strengthened overseas and on muted domestic equities.
