The Indian stock market indices are likely to open on a tepid note following weak global cues.

Asian markets traded lower while US markets ended mixed overnight after the release of better than expected US GDP data.

On Wednesday, the domestic indices ended with strong gains led by gains in IT, banks and auto stocks.

The Sensex rallied 727.71 points, or 1.10%, to 66,901.91, while the Nifty 50 closed at 20,096.60 level, up 206.90 points or 1.04%.

“We expect the market momentum to sustain over the next few days. However, several important events including India GDP, monthly F&O expiry, state election exit polls and OPEC+ meeting on Thursday could induce some volatility over the last 2 days. Market will also react to US GDP data," said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.

US Markets

US stocks ended mixed on Wednesday after a robust upward GDP revision eased recession fears, while Federal Reserve officials' remarks raised questions about the duration of the central bank's restrictive policy, Reuters reported.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 13.44 points, or 0.04%, to 35,430.42, while the S&P 500 fell 4.31 points, or 0.09%, to 4,550.58. The Nasdaq Composite ended 23.27 points, or 0.16%, lower at 14,258.49.

US GDP

The US economy grew faster than initially thought in the third quarter, the report from the Commerce Department showed on Wednesday. US GDP increased at a 5.2% annualized rate last quarter, revised up from the previously reported 4.9% pace. It was the fastest pace of expansion since the fourth quarter of 2021.

Economists polled by Reuters had expected GDP growth would be revised up to a 5.0% rate. The economy grew at a 2.1% pace in the April-June quarter.
