Global Markets:

Asian stocks advanced on Thursday, buoyed by growing optimism for lower interest rates globally. The positive sentiment mirrored record highs on Wall Street`s S&P 500 and NASDAQ, fueled in part by weak US labor data. This data rekindled expectations of a Federal Reserve rate cut by September.

The US Labor Department said job openings fell to 8.059 million in April, the lowest since 2021, from a downwardly revised 8.355 million in March.

Further fueling the rally were Wednesday`s interest rate reduction by the Bank of Canada and anticipation of a similar move by the European Central Bank later that day. This confluence of events fueled hopes for a global decrease in borrowing costs.

Chip-related stocks climbed after market leader NVIDIA surged to a $3 trillion valuation on Wednesday, riding the wave of artificial intelligence (AI) enthusiasm. Positive comments from ASML Holding NV, the world`s top manufacturer of semiconductor equipment, further bolstered investor confidence in the chipmaking sector. The market anticipates that rising AI demand will translate into a global surge for semiconductors.

Domestic Markets:

The domestic stock market staged a comeback Wednesday, clawing back most of Tuesday`s losses. Buoyed by the NDA`s promise to form a government, the Nifty surged past 22,600 with financials, autos and FMCG leading the charge. However, experts caution of continued volatility until the new cabinet is formed. The long-term outlook for Indian equities, however, remains positive. In the barometer index, the barometer index, the S&P BSE Sensex was soared 2,303.19 points or 3.20% to 74,382.24. The Nifty 50 index surged 735.85 points or 3.36% to 22,620.35.
