Indian markets are expected to open flat tracking marginally negative opening in SGX Nifty and most of the Asian markets.

US stock markets ended lower showing a substantial downturn over the course of the trading session on Tuesday, after moving mostly higher in morning trading. The negative sentiments were largely attributed to concerns about the escalating conflict in Iraq, which inspired some traders to cash in on the recent strength in the markets. Additionally, Syrian warplanes which struck targets in western Iraq indicated the broader regional conflict as reported Wall Street Journal added to the worries. Meanwhile, European stocks inched higher on Tuesday, taking back losses from the previous session despite some mixed economic data.

Back home, Indian shares rebounded sharply on Tuesday from two and a half weeks lows hit on Monday as a decline in crude prices eased concerns that inflation will quicken. Investors were also encouraged by media reports that Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki was under pressure to step down to help form an inclusive government by July 1.
