Indian shares are heading for a firm opening on Thursday morning going by emerging trends from the Singapore Stock Exchange.

SGX Nifty futures, that represent Indian stocks, have shrugged off its opening jitters and started trading up 0.11% at 0800 hours Indian Standard Time. Asian stocks, however, started morning trades on a mixed note with Australia and Taiwan markets rallying while other key regions including Hong Kong and Japan came under pressure, taking cues from Wall Street.

US equities, overnight, closed lower on inflation fears amid supply chain concerns eating into corporate earnings of retail and consumer goods sectors. Investors on Wall Street were also concerned about the Federal Reserve advancing interest rates hike to tame rising prices.
