Indian equity markets are likely to start Wednesday with a slightly negative bias as the SGX Nifty is seen trading down by 28.50 points or 0.16% at 17,790 levels. However, like in the recent past, we have seen dips are being bought, and expect a similar kind of trend to continue on Wednesday as well. The big news which could act as music to the ears of the bulls is that rating agency Moody’s has upgraded its outlook on India’s sovereign ratings to stable from negative.

Overnight cues from US markets: It was a green day on Wall Street as all three major US stocks indices ended the session in positive terrain.
