Indian stock market: The domestic equity market is expected to open flat on Wednesday tracking mixed cues from global peers.

Asian markets traded mostly lower, while the US stock market ended mixed overnight, with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq closing at record highs.

US Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell, in his testimony to US Congress, told lawmakers that more “good” economic data would strengthen the case for rate cuts. While he acknowledged progress in inflation and a cooling job market, he did not give a clear signal for cutting interest rates.

Markets have stuck to pricing in 50 basis points of easing for the year, seeing a nearly 72% chance for a 25 bps rate cut by the Fed’s September meeting, according to CME’s FedWatch.

On Tuesday, the Indian stock market benchmark indices ended higher after hitting fresh record highs led by a rally in automobile stocks.

The Sensex rose 391.26 points, or 0.49%, to close at 80,351.64, while the Nifty 50 settled 112.65 points, or 0.46%, higher at 24,433.20.

“We expect markets to trade with a positive bias and take cues from upcoming inflation data, Q1FY25 earnings, and budget. Pharma sector is likely to remain in focus over the next few days on back comfortable valuation and expectation of healthy earning growth in Q1,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.

Japan Wholesale Inflation

Japan’s wholesale inflation accelerated in June as weak yen pushed up the cost of raw material imports.
