Markets Trade Flat; Investors Eye Corporate Results


Markets opened the day marginally lower, despite strong global cues, as investor sentiments were dampened by the inflation data released on Monday.

Retail inflation rate in December jumped to an over five-year high of 7.35 per cent in December. As such, the CPI inflation has surpassed the RBI's comfort level, thus strongly limiting the extent to which the central bank can ease interest rates further.

The Sensex was trading with losses of 55 points, while the Nifty was lower by 8 points in trade. Shares In IndusInd Bank was trading marginally higher, ahead of its corporate results. Infosys, which had a spectacular rally on Monday, shed some gains in trade.

Wipro was marginally higher, ahead of its numbers to be declared later today.
