Here we list out key things that you should know ahead of stock market's opening bell today:

Global markets cues

The Wall Street witnessed brutal sell-off after US inflation data for August came higher than the market expectations. Dow Jones crashed 3.94 per cent, Nasdaq nosedived 5.16 per cent, S&P 500 lost 4.32 per cent whereas Small Cap 2000 lowered 4.20 per cent. Asian equities extended the global rally in risk assets amid speculation Tuesday’s US consumer price data will support bets that inflation there is near peaking. European stocks advanced on Tuesday for the fourth straight session, with underlying sentiment boosted by M&A talk and hopes for a softer US inflation reading.

US inflation data

“The US inflation in August rose higher at 8.3% y-o-y against expectation of 8.1%. The CPI index increased 0.1% month on month while the economists were expecting it to decline by 0.1% over the month due to sharp correction in energy prices. However, decline in energy prices was offset by higher cost of food (+0.8% m/m) and shelter costs (+0.7% m/m). High costs of food, housing, transportation and other services reiterate the strong consumer demand and elevated service sector price pressures. With inflation being ‘stickier’ than expected, it is highly likely that the Fed will go for another jumbo rate hike of 75bps in its next FOMC meeting on 21st September," said Ritika Chhabra, Economist and Quant Analyst at Prabhudas Lilladher.

Asian markets cues

In early morning session on Wednesday, Japanese Nikkei is down 2.10 per cent, Hong Kong's Hang Seng is off 2.29 per cent whereas Chinese Shanghai went off 0.74 per cent.
