MARKET QUOTE | Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services on Wednesday's market performance

"Broadly, domestic market continued to trade negative after a disappointing opening as inflation worries affected the global markets. However, the market trend was mixed on stock to stock basis. China’s CPI rose 1.5% YoY, while the producer price index rose by 13.5% YoY owing to imported inflation and domestic supply shortages. Globally investors are awaiting the release of the US inflation data due later today, which is expected to continue at peak levels."
