Domestic equity indices opened flat on Wednesday, tracking weak global cues. The key indices in the US markets were all in the red and Asian stocks’ benchmark indices showed mixed cues. The domestic investors were on a cautious note and experts are of the view that one may see extended profit-booking in the next few sessions, as investors would focus on the global mood. The BSE 30-share Sensex lost 115 to 61,817.61 and NSE’s Nifty 50 dropped 112.35 to 18,286.50.
