Indian equity markets slumped following weak cues from Wall Street
overnight. The major U.S. market indices witnessed highest single-day loss
in multiple years amid lingering concerns over U.S. government
shutdown. The Congress is expected to pass a spending bill by Feb 8, else

because of concern over a possible increase in inflation and speculation
over U.S. interest rates hike, also dampened the risk sentiment of
investors. Back home, caution ahead of the Monetary Policy Committee’s
meeting, scheduled later during the week, prevented market participants
from taking riskier bets.
