Domestic markets opened positive on Tuesday after an extended weekend on account of improving global cues and a jump in banking stocks.

It may be noted that all Nifty sectoral indexes were in the green in early trade with Nifty Bank and Nifty Metal leading the rally.

It seems that some of the eased rules under lockdown 4.0 have cheered markets, despite the uncertainty stemming from the daily rise in cases in India.

Globally, share markets performed well as investors looked past US-China tensions and focused on re-opening the world economy. Asian markets also edged ahead in view of the development.
