Indian stock market: The Indian equity market benchmark indices, Sensex and Nifty 50 are expected to open higher on Thursday following a rally in global equities.

Asian markets traded higher with Japan’s Nikkei hitting record highs, while the US stock market also saw record-high closing overnight fueled by gains in tech stocks like Nvidia.

US Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell’s testimony before the House members on Wednesday raised expectations that the central bank may begin the policy easing cycle this year.

Expectations of a 25-basis-point interest rate cut by September rose to 74% from around 70% on Tuesday and 45% a month ago, according to CME’s FedWatch.

On Wednesday, the Indian stock market indices ended around half a percent lower each dragged by profit booking at record high levels.

The Sensex tanked 426.87 points, or 0.53, to close at 79,924.77, while the Nifty 50 settled 108.75 points, or 0.45%, lower at 24,324.45.

“We expect the market to consolidate in the higher zone and any dip is a buying opportunity for long-term investors. Corporate earnings will start with TCS first to announce numbers. Thus, the IT sector is expected to remain in focus,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.
