“Early gains are likely in Tuesday trades as steady optimism in other Asian indices is likely to keep the mood upbeat for local investors. Even as US markets were shut on Monday, the trading theme still revolves around the US debt agreement between US President Joe Biden and Republican Kevin McCarthy to raise the $31.4 trillion debt ceiling. The vote on the deal is likely to happen on Wednesday. Also, FIIs' relentless buying and hopes of a Fed rate hike pause could help maintain the buying momentum. Technically, all bullish eyes will now be at Nifty’s all-time-high at the 18888 mark, while Bank Nifty could be a big outperformer as the benchmark aims at its psychological 45,000 mark," said Prashanth Tapse, Senior VP (Research), Mehta Equities Ltd.
