Indian stock market: The domestic equity indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, are expected to open flat on Wednesday tracking mixed cues from peers, ahead of India and US inflation data and the US Federal Reserve interest rate decision.

Asian markets traded mixed, while the US stock market ended mostly higher with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq settling at record closing highs.

Markets have dialed back expectations for the Fed’s first rate cut happening in September, now pricing in about a 50% chance, according to the CME's FedWatch tool, Reuters reported.

On Tuesday, the Indian stock market indices ended flat amid weak global cues.

The Sensex eased 33.49 points, or 0.04%, to close at 76,456.59, while the Nifty 50 settled up 5.65 points, or 0.02%, at 23,264.85.

“Given the absence of any fresh trigger, the market seems to be in consolidation mode. Globally, investors are cautiously awaiting US CPI data and US Fed policy outcome which will be released tomorrow. US Fed commentary could provide direction to the market. So far investors are baking in 1 rate cut towards the end of the year; so any deviation from that could drive the market on either side,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.
