(As reported by NewsRise)

• SGX Nifty nearest-month futures were trading 0.5% higher at 16,104.

• The Indian rupee is tipped to remain little changed amid a decline in the Chinese yuan and losses on Asian equities following the minutes of the U.S. Federal Reserve’s May meeting.

• Indian federal government bond yields will likely inch lower in the early trades as New Delhi plans to stick to its borrowing target for this fiscal year, subduing fears of additional debt. The yield on the benchmark 6.54% bond maturing in 2032 is likely to trade in 7.27%-7.32% band today.

GLOBAL MARKETS

• Wall Street closed higher on Wednesday, boosted after minutes from the Federal Reserve's latest monetary policy meeting showed policymakers unanimously felt the U.S. economy was very strong as they grappled with reining in inflation without triggering a recession.

• Asian share markets slipped after minutes from the Federal Reserve's early May meeting showed a majority backing half-percentage-point rate hikes in June and July, and as persistent concerns over global growth sapped confidence.

• The safe-haven dollar hovered near a one-month low amid improving risk appetite after minutes of the Federal Reserve's May meeting confirmed the potential for a pause in rate hikes after two more half-point increases in June and July.

• Benchmark U.S. Treasury yields were little changed on Wednesday after minutes from the Federal Reserve showed policymakers agreed to hike interest rates by a half-percentage point to combat inflation and said a "very strong" economy may require reducing monetary supply.

• Oil prices rose, extending a cautious rally this week on signs of tight supply while the European Union (EU) wrangles with Hungary over plans to ban imports from Russia, the world's second-largest crude exporter, after it invaded Ukraine.

• Gold prices edged lower as Treasury yields gained, after the appeal of bullion was somewhat restored by minutes of a U.S. Federal Reserve policy meeting that showed the central bank was unlikely to get more aggressive on interest rate hikes.
