Stock market today: On account of weak global market sentiments ahead of the US Fed chairman Jerome Powell's speech on Wednesday, the Indian stock market remained range-bound throughout the Wednesday session. Out of three frontline indices, The Nifty 50 index and the BSE Sensex ended lower whereas the Bank Nifty ended in the green territory on the previous session. However, the broad market indices continued outperforming the key benchmark indices as the small-call and the mid-cap indices gained over 0.50 percent.

"The Nifty index traded in a narrow range with a negative bias to close flat at 22,435 levels. The broader market outperformed with the Nifty mid-cap 100 up 0.4% and the Nifty Smallcap 100 up 1%. Sector-wise it was a mixed bag with PSU Bank being the top gainer. Markets are trading with caution ahead of the RBI policy meeting and key macro data to be released in the US and Europe. Also, US Fed Chair Powell's speech will be keenly watched. We expect the market to consolidate over the next few days until the events unfold," said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research at Motilal Oswal.

On triggers that may dictate the Indian stock market today, Osho Krishan, Senior Analyst - Technical & Derivative Research at Angel One said, "Going ahead, sectoral rotation is evident and is expected to keep the traders’ fraternity busy in the coming sessions.

For now, dips are anticipated to augur well for the bulls and we would advocate following the aforementioned levels stringently."
