Indian markets expected to open on Negative note tracking SGX Nifty and the Asian markets.

U.S. stocks rose, with the Standard & Poor's 500 Index rebounding from the biggest weekly loss in two years, as Portugal announced a bailout for Banco Espirito Santo SA and Berkshire Hathaway Inc beat earnings estimates.

European equities declined for a fourth day as the region's two largest stocks Nestle & Novartis retreated, outweighing reduced concern about the region's most indebted lenders after Portugal bailed out Banco Espirito Santo SA.

Back home, Indian indices jumped as firm global markets boosted investor sentiment. Fall in crude oil prices ease concerns about India's adverse fiscal and current account deficit situation further supported buying on the bourses.
