Indian Stock Market Overnight: 7 Key Changes You Need to Know

The Asian markets showed a mixed trend, and the US markets also closed with mixed results overnight. The Nasdaq hit a new record high, surpassing 17,000 for the first time. Factors such as a rise in US Treasury yields, hawkish comments from US Federal Reserve officials, and caution ahead of key economic data releases affected the markets.

On Tuesday, the Indian stock market’s main indices ended lower for the third consecutive session. The Sensex dropped 220.05 points to close at 75,170.45, and the Nifty 50 settled 44.30 points lower at 22,888.15.


Siddhartha Khemka, Head of Retail Research at Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd., expects the Nifty to remain sideways to marginally positive due to reduced FII selling, predictions of above-normal monsoon, and the last leg of Q4 results.
