Investing.com -- The Nifty 50 Futures listed on the Singapore-based Exchange SGX, an early indicator for Nifty50 , was trading 0.26% or 45 points higher at 8:42 am on Thursday, indicating a positive opening on Dalal Street, following strong global cues ahead of the RBI’s three-day monetary policy meeting that began on Wednesday. 

Further, the Dow Jones Futures traded flat and Nasdaq 100 Futures slipped 0.17%.

Major indices on Wall Street ended sharply higher on Wednesday, led by robust economic data, optimistic corporate forecasts and easing geopolitical tensions which fuelled investor appetite.

Thanks to an upbeat outlook from giants PayPal (NASDAQ: PYPL ) and CVS Health, all technology heavyweight index Nasdaq closed the session at a three-month high. Further, Treasury yields touched two-week peaks.

Economic data showed that the services industry in the US performed better-than-expected in July, solidifying views that the economy was not in recession.

Nasdaq Composite jumped 2.6%, Dow Jones climbed 1.3% and S&P 500 surged 1.6%.

Stocks across Asian markets rose on Thursday, mirroring an overnight rally on Wall Street and boosting investor risk appetite.
