Indian stock market: The domestic equity market benchmark indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, are expected to open lower on Thursday amid weak global market cues.

Asian markets traded lower, while the US stocks ended in the red overnight dragged by higher Treasury yields and concern over the timing and scale of possible interest rate cuts from the US Federal Reserve.

On Wednesday, the Indian stock market benchmark indices ended significantly lower, extending their losing streak for the fourth consecutive session, amid weak global cues.

The Sensex declined 667.55 points, or 0.89%, to close at 74,502.90, while the Nifty 50 settled 183.45 points, or 0.8%, lower at 22,704.70.

“Though FII selling intensity has reduced, the caution is increasing as we near the big event outcome which is resulting in profit booking. The volatility is expected to be heightened in coming sessions, thus it is advisable to traders to stay on the sidelines and not get too aggressive. The weak global cues are further adding to the nervousness and thus markets are likely to remain weak in near future," said  Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.

Here are key global market cues for Sensex today:
