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

Asian markets advanced following the gains on Wall Street as immediate concerns over the strength of the global financial system dissipated. All 11 groups in the index rose as regulators worldwide rushed to shore up market confidence. Contracts for the gauge and the Nasdaq 100 were steady in early Asian trading. Banks enjoyed relief after days of turmoil that triggered last week’s 15% rout in an index of U.S. lenders. UBS Group AG rose as investors focused on the upside of its Credit Suisse Group AG takeover. Investors have increased bets on a quarter-point hike as the recent financial turmoil has spurred speculation on a slower pace of tightening from major central banks worldwide. Meanwhile, the yield on 10-year treasuries were trading at 3.48%. Crude prices were trading around $73-mark, while Bitcoin was around 27,000-level. At 5:50 a.m., the Singapore-traded SGX Nifty, an early indicator of India’s benchmark Nifty 50, was down 0.49% at 17,107.5. Indian benchmark indices, Sensex and Nifty, snapped their two-day rally to close in the red, dragged by losses in metal and PSU stocks. The Indian rupee pared opening gains to close lower against the U.S. dollar as investors remained cautious in the face of a global banking crisis and an upcoming FOMC meeting.
