Indian benchmark indices started the session on a cautious note on Wednesday and traded in a tight range for the most part of the trading session as the mood was cautious ahead of RBI’s monetary policy.

Finally, the NSE’s 50-share broadly followed index Nifty, ended on a flat note with a positive bias, while Bombay Stock Exchange’s Sensitive Index or Sensex lost around forty-five points.The European markets ended Wednesday’s session with mixed results.

The FTSE 100 of the U.K. gained 0.04 per cent.The Dow Industrials closed lower on Wednesday as financial stocks continued to slide; while the S&P 500 closed fractionally higher and the Nasdaq scored a new record high.

At 8:07 am, SGX Nifty index gained 19 points to 8,831, indicating a flat to positive start for Indian equities.
