The market opened flat with the #Sensex at 19614.45, up 21.17 points. The #Nifty is up 7.40 points at 5839.05. All eyes will be on Reserve Bank of India's credit policy today. The market will look forward to indications from RBI on when the tight money rules will be rolled back. Meanwhile the RBI's macroeconomic report says currency stability is its top priority. It also adds that steps to tighten liquidity will give the government space to make structural reforms to lower the current account deficit. The Indian rupee opened weak by 21 paise at 59.62 per dollar against 59.41 Monday and we expect further weakness, following the RBI's hawkish comments. Key policy rates are likely to be unchanged in today's policy.
