INDIA STOCKS-Indian shares seen opening lower ahead of RBI policy outcome

09/29/2022 | 10:37pm EST

BENGALURU, Sept 30 (Reuters) - Indian shares are tipped to open slightly lower on Friday, ahead of an expected interest rate hike by the country's central bank to fight inflation amid lingering fears of a global recession.

India's NSE stock futures listed on the Singapore exchange were down 0.5% as of 0220 GMT, while MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was down 0.6%.

The NSE Nifty 50 index fell 0.24% to 16,818.10 on Thursday, while the S&P BSE Sensex dropped 0.33% to 56,409.96.

A majority of market participants are expecting the Reserve Bank of India to raise its key interest rate by 50 basis points for a third consecutive time.

Foreign institutional investors sold a net 35.99 billion Indian rupees ($441.7 million) worth of equities on Thursday, while domestic investors purchased net 31.62 billion rupees worth, as per provisional data available with the National Stock Exchange.
