LOCAL MARKETS OUTLOOK

(As reported by NewsRise)

• SGX Nifty nearest-month futures were trading 0.6% lower at 17,138.00.

• The Indian rupee may decline versus the dollar today on worries that the new coronavirus mutation and the Federal Reserve’s focus on curbing price pressures could disrupt a fledgling global economic recovery.

• Oil prices rose, reversing the previous day's losses, on expectations OPEC+ may pause supply additions amid growing concern the spread of the Omicron coronavirus variant could weigh on the global economy and fuel demand.
