INDIA STOCKS-Indian shares seen opening higher as global equities attempt bounce

BENGALURU, Oct 4 (Reuters) - Indian shares are expected to open higher on Tuesday, tracking a bounce in global equities, as investors eyed decisions from central banks that would help avoid a financial crisis.

Domestic investors were also keeping an eye on global crude prices as a surge will heat up inflation in the world’s third largest oil importing country.

India’s NSE stock futures listed on the Singapore exchange were up 1.4%, as of 0220 GMT, while MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan rose 1.1%.

The NSE Nifty 50 index fell 1.2% to 16,887.35 on Monday and the S&P BSE Sensex closed down 1.1% at 56,788.81.

Asian stocks bounced on Tuesday after Britain scrapped bits of a controversial tax cut plan, tentatively improving global market sentiment and rallying bonds and the pound.

A United Nations agency warned on Monday of the risk of a monetary policy-induced global recession that would have especially serious consequences for developing countries and called for a new strategy.

Foreign institutional investors bought net 5.91 billion rupees ($72.48 million) worth of equities on Monday, while domestic investors sold net 4.23 billion rupees worth, as per provisional data available with the National Stock Exchange.
