Indian stock market: The domestic equity indices are expected to open on a steady note amid mixed global market cues.

The Asian markets traded flat while the US stock market ended mixed overnight ahead of the key economic data that could shed light on the possible timing of a US Federal Reserve interest rate cut.

Expectations for a cut of at least 25 basis points (bps) by the Fed at its June meeting stand at 59.1%, down from the near certainty at the end of January, according to the CME Group's FedWatch tool.

Investors will now watch for Thursday’s January personal consumption expenditures price index (PCE), the Fed’s preferred inflation gauge.

On Tuesday, the Indian stock market indices ended higher, snapping a two-day correction.

The Sensex gained 305.09 points, or 0.42%, to close at 73,095.22, while the Nifty 50 settled 76.30 points, or 0.34%, higher at 22,198.35.

“Domestic equities are consolidating in a range with every dip being bought showing strength at lower levels. Overall, we expect the market to trade in range with positive bias. Globally, investors would watch out for US and Europe Consumer Confidence Data," said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.
