Trading of Nifty 50 index futures on the Singapore stock exchange indicates that the Nifty could rise 68 points at the opening bell. Bharti Airtel, Dabur India, Hero MotoCorp, NMDC, Power Grid Corporation of India, UPL and Vedanta will announce October-December 2018 quarterly results today, 31 January 2019.

Trading could be volatile as traders roll over positions in the F&O segment from the near month January 2019 series to February 2019 series. The January 2019 F&O contracts expire today, 31 January 2019.

Investors will focus on interim budget to be announced on Friday, 1 February 2019. The interim budget will be the last one presented by the current NDA government led by Prime Minister Modi, before the 2019 general elections in April.

The Budget session of Parliament will begin from today. The session will begin with the address of President Ram Nath Kovind to the joint sitting of both the Houses of Parliament in Central Hall. The session will conclude on 13th of next month.

Overseas, Asian stocks edged higher as the Federal Reserve signaled it is putting further interest-rate increases on hold. US stocks rallied to close higher Wednesday, after scoring a boost from solid corporate results and a seemingly accommodative Federal Reserve.

The Fed held rates unchanged at a range of 2.25% to 2.50%, as widely expected, but dropped its longstanding reference to further gradual rate hikes. Instead, it emphasized that it will be patient as it determines what future adjustments to the target range for the federal-funds rate may be appropriate to support these outcomes. The central bank also said it would adjust the rate of its balance-sheet runoff, and may even consider ending it.

Meanwhile, US-China trade talks resumed Wednesday as federal prosecutors accused Huawei of violating US sanctions on Iran and of intellectual property theft which had obviously angered the Chinese government. Huawei has denied the allegations.

Back home, key equity indices ended flat yesterday after alternately swinging between positive and negative zone throughout the trading session. The Sensex fell 1.25 points to settle at 35,591.25.

The trading activity on that day showed that the foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) bought shares worth a net Rs 130.25 crore yesterday, 30 January 2019, as per provisional data released by the stock exchanges. Domestic institutional investors (DIIs) bought shares worth a net Rs 502.26 crore yesterday, 30 January 2019, as per provisional data.

Among corporate news, ICICI Bank's net profit fell 2.75% to Rs 1,604.91 crore on 19.79% increase in total income to Rs 20,163.25 crore in Q3 December 2018 over Q3 December 2017. The result was announced after trading hours yesterday, 30 January 2019.

NTPC's net profit rose 1% to Rs 2385.41 crore on 16.1% increase in net sales to Rs 24,120.36 crore in Q3 December 2018 over Q3 December 2017. The result was announced after trading hours yesterday, 30 January 2019.

The board of NTPC recommended issuing 1 bonus share for every 5 existing equity shares, subject to approval of the shareholders.
