Tata Motors Ltd.'s profit increased in the third quarter of fiscal 2024 on higher sales, beating consensus estimates significantly, while Bank of India saw a dip in its net interest income.

Ashok Leyland Ltd., Tata Chemicals Ltd. and Bharti Airtel Ltd. are among the companies reporting their quarterly results on Monday.

India's benchmark stock indices ended the budget week higher on Friday, led by gains in IT companies and index heavyweight Reliance Industries Ltd.

The Nifty breached 22,000 for the first time since Jan. 16 to hit a fresh record high, but was unable to hold on to a bout of profit booking. The Sensex increased by as much as 2.02%, coming close to its all-time high, but fell in late trade due to losses at Axis Bank Ltd. and HDFC Bank Ltd.

On a weekly basis, the indices snapped two straight weeks of losses to end higher. The Nifty closed 156.35 points, or 0.72%, higher at 21,853.80, while the Sensex gained 440.34 points, or 0.6%, to end at 72,085.63.

Overseas investors turned net buyers of Indian equities after a day. Foreign portfolio investors mopped up stocks worth Rs 70.7 crore, while domestic institutional investors remained net buyers and purchased equities worth Rs 2,463.2 crore, the NSE data showed.

The Indian rupee strengthened 5 paise to close at Rs 82.93 against the U.S. dollar.

Markets in Australia were trading in red as investors await for the policy decision from the Reserve Bank of Australia on Tuesday.

The S&P ASX 200 was 103.10 points or 1.34% lower at 7,596.30 as of 06:13 a.m.. The KOSPI was 34.07 points or 1.30% down at 2,581.24.

However, share indices in Japan was trading higher with the Nikkei 225 trading 177.24 points or 0.49% higher at 36,335.26.

The U.S. stock market extended the week’s gains amid a rally in big tech and a solid jobs report bolstered the outlook for corporate America.

Equities continued to show resilience near their all-time highs, with the S&P 500 topping 4,900. The tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 climbed 1% thanks to bullish outlook from two megacaps: Meta and Amazon.

Brent crude was trading 0.43% up at $77.66 a barrel. Gold also traded 0.23% lower at $2,035.04 an ounce.
