Indian equity benchmark indices bounced back on Wednesday following buying in capital goods, banking, and oil stocks amid fresh foreign fund inflows. Breaking its three-day losing streak, the BSE Sensex gained 351.49 points or 0.53 per cent to settle at 66,707.20. The NSE Nifty advanced 97.70 points or 0.50 per cent to end at 19,778.30.

"Optimism has inched back today after the last three trading days of consolidation ahead of the FOMC meeting. As the market’s ambiguity against the monetary policy is likely to reverse henceforth, going forward we are unlikely to see another Fed rate hike in 2023. This is because inflation has rapidly come down and is forecast to settle down further," said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.

"However, the interest rate is expected to stay high in the short-term since the rigidity of core inflation remains above the long-term average," he added.
