It is critical for traders who participate in multiple exchanges to track various markets worldwide. However, even as investors, it is critical to monitor the performance of foreign market indices worldwide. For example, how often have you seen negative news from the United States exacerbated the impact on Indian markets?
This explains the significance of keeping track very well. Even Asian markets, such as the Japanese and Hong Kong indices, provide numerous indicators. Because they open before the Indian markets, it is assumed that if they perform well, the Indian markets will follow suit.
