Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services, V.K. Vijayakumar, said, “U.S. and European markets shrugging off the high U.S. inflation rate of 6.2 per cent is very significant and this is likely to impart resilience to global equity markets in the short-term even while there is concern about elevated valuations in stock prices.”

Elsewhere in Asia, bourses in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Seoul were trading with gains in mid-session deals.

In contrast, stock exchanges in the U.S. ended marginally lower in the overnight session.
