New Delhi: The domestic stock indices are likely to trade lower on Wednesday taking cues from the global markets. Asian stocks slipped following a mixed Wall Street session as higher U.S. Treasury yields weighed on global tech firms and pushed the dollar to a five-year high against Japan’s yen. Trends on SGX Nifty indicated a negative opening for the markets back home. The Nifty Futures on Singapore Exchange also known as the SGX Nifty Futures fell 42.15 points or 0.24 per cent to 17,813.
The benchmark BSE Sensex had surged 673 points or 1.14 per cent to close at 59,856 on Tuesday, while the broader NSE Nifty had settled 180 points or 1.02 per cent higher at 17,805.
Here Are Stocks To Watch During Today’s Session:
