Indian Indices:

The Indian equities may begin today’s trading session on a flat note tracking mixed global cues. SGX Nifty is trading 49.50 points higher.

The Reserve Bank of India on Monday cut a key overnight interest rate, the RBI reduced the marginal standing facility (MSF) rate by 50 bps to 9% from 9.5% with immediate effect. The MSF cut will ease short-term rates and companies are likely to borrow from the commercial paper (CP) market instead of banks.

On Monday (October 07, 2013) S&P BSE Sensex fell 20.85 points to close at 19895.10 while Nifty slipped 1.15 points to end at 5906.15.
