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

Asian markets traded mixed, while the US markets also ended mixed overnight with the Nasdaq hitting another new record high to surpass 17,000 for the first time.

A rise in US Treasury yields, hawkish comments from US Federal Reserve officials and cautiousness amid the release of key economic data weighed on the markets.

On Tuesday, the Indian stock market benchmark equity indices ended lower, extending the losing streak for the third consecutive session.

The Sensex declined 220.05 points, or 0.29%, to close at 75,170.45, while the Nifty 50 settled 44.30 points, or 0.19%, lower at 22,888.15.

“We expect the Nifty to remain sideways to marginally positive on the back of reduced FII selling, prediction of above normal monsoon and last leg of Q4 results," said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.

Here are key global market cues for Sensex today:

US Consumer Confidence

US consumer confidence unexpectedly improved in May after deteriorating for three straight months. The Conference Board said that its consumer confidence index increased to 102.0 this month from an upwardly revised 97.5 in April. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast the index slipping to 95.9 from the previously reported 97.0.

US Federal Reserve

Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis President Neel Kashkari said the US central bank’s policymakers haven’t entirely ruled out additional interest-rate increases. Earlier, in an interview on CNBC, he said officials should wait for more evidence that inflation is cooling before cutting interest rates, especially given the strong labor market and resilient economy.
