GIFT Nifty:

Trading of Nifty 50 index futures on the GIFT Nifty indicates that the Nifty could rise 31 points at the opening bell.

Global markets:

Overseas, Asian markets fell Thursday, led by Japan as the country resumed trading after an extended New Year�s holiday during which it witnessed an earthquake and a collision at Tokyo�s Haneda airport involving Japan Airlines.

The Caixin China General Services Business Activity Index rose to 52.9 in December compared with 51.5 in November, climbing for a 12th straight month. The survey also noted that the rate of growth was the fastest since July.
