Indian Indices:

The key domestic benchmarks are likely to open lower today tracking a mostly bearish trend in Asian markets. SGX Nifty is trading 36.00 points down.

Adding further, market is in a correction phase after a massive rally in recent weeks.

Further, investor sentiment may be impacted by the Supreme Court’s decision to cancel most coal blocks allocated since 1993 and slap a $ 1.3 billion penalty that may cause a coal shortage and raise power generation costs in Asia’s third biggest economy.

Indian shares fell for a third consecutive session on Thursday, as lenders and other coal-related firms remained under strong pressure a day after the country’s top court scrapped all but four of 218 coal blocks allocated by the government since 1993. The BSE Sensex and the CNX Nifty ended 1.03%-1.13% lower.

On Thursday (September 25, 2014) 30-share Sensex ended down 276 points at 26,468 and the 50-share Nifty ended down 91 points at 7,912.

Global Market:

Asian shares got off to a rocky start on Friday after a sharp drop on Wall Street curbed enthusiasm for the dollar even after it touched multi-year highs in the previous session.

U.S. stocks ended with sharp losses on Thursday, with the S&P 500 suffering its biggest one-day decline since July, as Apple tumbled and the dollar rose to a four-year high.

European shares slipped to a one-month low in late trading on Thursday, tracking a sell-off in U.S. stocks, as a stronger dollar undercut prices for industrial metals, causing mining shares to drop.
