Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], May 17 (ANI): Indian benchmark indices start Friday's trading session on a muted note influenced by global cues. The Nifty 50 index declined by 29 points to 22,374.20 in the early trade while the BSE Sensex lost 149 points to 73,548 at the time of filing this report.

"Looking at Friday, the global handover is soft while the domestic impulse is bullish. Given then India has underperformed based on domestic issues, the ECI data could lead to a FOMO buying in Indian equities. We remain cautious going into the June 4th Election Results announcement. Voter turnout has no predictive power in indicating election results. However, market sentiments are being impacted by this number, so we can expect some continued upmove" said Ajay Bagga, Banking and Market Expert.

He further added: "The FII selling intensity moderated on Thursday and as and when FIIs come to liquidate their huge short positions in the derivatives markets, Indian markets will get an upsurge."

The commodity market saw gains, with WTI crude on pace for a third day of increases and gold slightly higher. Bitcoin traded above USD 65,000 after stabilizing from a prior decline.

In the US market on Thursday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average index crossed the 40,000 level for the first time, the expert said that the recent rally in the index is amid the hopes of rate cuts from the Fed in the coming months.
