Indian stock indices are looking positive on Monday morning if early trends from SGX Nifty futures trading on the Singapore stock exchange is any indication. SGX Nifty was up 0.40% during early trades riding on Friday gains from Wall Street even as Asian shares opened mixed fretting over Chinese economic data.

US stocks rose on Friday and Dow posted its second highest weekly gain since June as Goldman Sachs sounded out strong earnings growth for big banks. Asian shares, however, opened Monday morning trades with concerns over lower growth in the world's second largest economy during the third quarter. Taiwan, Australia shares were looking up though Japan, Hong Kong and Chinese shares were negative.
