Indian markets are very likely to open in red today. RBI will announce interest rate hike later in the day. Many investors and market participants will therefore do some selling in early hours as they take a more cautious stand. A 50 basis point rate hike is expected. If RBI goes for anything above that it will be a severe jolt for equity markets. Even a 50 basis point hike will be depressing for equity markets, as it will slow down the economy further.
