Indian stock market: The domestic equity indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, are expected to open on subdued note Tuesday following mixed global market cues.

Asian shares traded flat, while the US stock market was closed on Monday for a holiday. Investors gauged comments from the European Central Bank officials and other key economic data.

On Monday, the Indian stock market benchmark indices ended flat after hitting their fresh record highs in intraday trade amid profit booking at higher levels.

The Sensex eased 19.89 points, or 0.03%, to close at 75,390.50, while the Nifty 50 settled 24.65 points, or 0.11%, lower at 22,932.45.

“Amidst the celebration, there looms a question regarding the sustainability of this bullish trend. The previous day unfolded with cautious trading, anticipating heightened volatility in the near term. With Nifty closing slightly lower, the market sentiment underscores a prevailing sense of caution," said Prashanth Tapse, Senior VP (Research), Mehta Equities Ltd.

T+1 Trading Cycle

The US stock market will shift to T+1 (Trade + 1) trading cycle from Tuesday as per the Securities and Exchange Commission rule to shorten the settlement cycle for securities transactions from two business days after the trade to one.

ECB 

European Central Bank officials have batted for an interest rate cut next week as Olli Rehn, ECB governing council member, stressed that inflation in the euro area was falling in a “sustained way."

“Thanks to this disinflationary process, inflation is converging to our 2% target in a sustained way, and the time is thus ripe in June to ease the monetary policy stance and start cutting rates," Rehn said in a speech.

The People’s Bank of China said it will conduct a 5 billion yuan 3-month central bank bill swap on May 28.
