The Indian market is expected to open higher on Friday taking cues from US bourses that hit record highs after President Donald Trump said the country had reached a "deal in principle" with China. However, weak macro data — retail inflation jumping to a 40-month high of 5.54 percent in November and the index of industrial production (IIP) contracting by 3.8 percent in October — are expected to limit the gain. At 7:11 am, the SGX Nifty was trading 29 points higher at 12,055, indicating a positive opening for the Sensex and Nifty50.
