The market is expected to open in the green as trends on the SGX Nifty indicate a positive opening for the broader index in India with a gain of 105 points. The market extended losses for the second straight session and fell more than 1 per cent on April 25, as increasing COVID-led lockdown fear in China and hawkish commentary of Fed officials dampened sentiment. The benchmark indices erased all previous two days’ gains in the following two sessions (last Friday, and Monday). The BSE Sensex corrected 617 points to 56,580, while the Nifty50 plunged 218 points to 16,954.
