SGX Nifty is at 10876 levels, up 67 points. For today, expect the new series to see more emphasis on mid caps as we see the trading favorite bounce back smartly.

On Thursday, Nifty saw the last expiry of derivative contracts end near 10800 as it closed in the positive for second day running. The last hour saw more profit booking as European indices traded very weak in anticipation of weak US futures. For today, expect the new series to see more emphasis on mid caps as we see the trading favorite bounce back smartly.

Global markets: The Japanese Nikkei saw mild profit booking after a superb rally yesterday, while the other Asian indices traded in the green taking positive cues from the sharp pull back in US indices. Expect year end blues with low participation taking a toll on market moves with sentiment extremely fragile after the recent bouts of volatility.

US markets: Dow Jones reverses from down 600 to close up 260 points as US indices have biggest reversal in 10 years. Low volumes, year end blues see indices swing wildly as markets attempt to bottom out. US$ sees further weakness which should bode well for emerging markets.

In the derivative market, FIIs bought 1040cr of Index futures and sold 1812cr worth of Index options.
