Indian stock markets today opened on a positive note as the Sensex gained 118 points in early trade. Nifty too was up 37 points on the cues of Singapore stock exchanges which traded higher in the previous session.

However, experts expect a choppy trading session as there are many factors which may drag it down too like China possibly being in the throes of a slowdown. Rupee too fell one paisa to hit another all-time low of 80.06 against US dollar in early trade.

Here are some of the post-market events of the last session that could have a bearing on the stocks.
