Indian stock market: The Indian equity market indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, are expected to open flat on Tuesday tracking a largely positive momentum in the global peers.

Asian markets traded mostly higher, while the US stock market ended mixed overnight with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq posting record-high closes.

Market participants will now monitor US Federal Reserve Jerome Powell’s semi annual testimony before US Senate and House committees on Tuesday and Wednesday. The US consumer price data due on Thursday and producer price data expected on Friday will also be gauged.

Traders now see a greater than 75% chance of a rate cut of at least 25 basis points by September, up from last week's 60%, according to CME's FedWatch.

On Monday, the Indian stock market benchmark indices ended choppy session flat amid absence of major triggers and continued profit booking at higher levels.

The Sensex eased 36.22 points, or 0.05%, to close at 79,960.38, while the Nifty 50 settled 3.30 points, or 0.01%, lower at 24,320.55.

“Due to lack of any fresh trigger, markets witnessed a range-bound session throughout the day and ended marginally weak owing to select profit-taking in banking, telecom and realty shares. Weak Asian cues also weighed on sentiment, while stretched valuations could see investors maintain caution for sometime,” said Prashanth Tapse, Senior VP (Research), Mehta Equities Ltd.

Here are key global market cues for Sensex today:
