“Markets have regained some strength, citing the low tone of the US Fed in the recently released meeting minutes. On the domestic front, the feeling of early onset of monsoon has further lifted,” he said.

Binod Nair, head of research at Geogit Financial Services, said US stocks were raised to soften inflation concerns, which could be a key factor in setting the tone for the upcoming Fed policy meeting. Relieving the long-standing lockdown in China has also helped lift sentiment across Asian markets.

“A near-term trend is visible in the retrospective domestic market, supported by the ease of valuation and the positive trend of global rivals,” Nair said.

“The Nifty rose for the third straight session on May 30 due to positive global signals due to China’s Cowid resistance and sharp Friday gains on Wall Street. Some local factors contributing to the mood are expected to have a positive effect on the early arrival of monsoon in Kerala,” said Deep. Research, HDFC Securities 6
