Performance of markets worldwide

In Asian markets, Seoul, Tokyo, and Hong Kong were trading in the green, while Shanghai quoted lower. The US markets ended in positive territory on Monday. Global oil benchmark Brent crude climbed 0.72 per cent to USD 72.36 a barrel.

"Markets may usher in gains in early Tuesday trade amid a sharp rally in overnight US markets even though Asian gauges are trading mixed. Markets are growing hopeful about the US economy and the interest-rate picture and are counting on a pause in interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve. Fed's decision to pause on interest rates hinges on the inflation data to trickle in later today," Prashanth Tapse, Senior VP (Research) at Mehta Equities Ltd, said in his pre-opening market comment.
