Indian stock market: The domestic equity benchmark indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, are expected to open higher on Tuesday following gains in global peers.

Asian markets traded higher, while the US stocks ended in the green led by a rally in Tesla and Apple shares.

Investors await the US Federal Reserve’s interest rate decision as the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) policy meeting begins today.

Traders expected the Fed to keep rates unchanged while striking a hawkish tone. Money markets are pricing in about 35 basis points (bps) of interest rate cuts this year, down from about 150 bps seen at the beginning of the year, according to LSEG.

On Monday, the Indian stock market indices ended with significant gains led by a strong rally in banking and financial stocks after upbeat March quarter results.

The Sensex surged 941.12 points, or 1.28%, to close at 74,671.28, while the Nifty 50 settled 223.45 points, or 1%, higher at 22,643.40.

“We expect the Nifty to continue its positive trend, on the back of a healthy earning season and macro data. This week domestic equities will take cues from the US Fed meeting and economic data globally," said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.
