Market Outlook: Indian markets are expected to open with a negative note on the back of unconstructive sentiments on the global space. On the global space The House of Representatives on Monday approved a last-gasp deal to raise the US borrowing limit in a decisive step toward averting a catastrophic debt default by the world's largest economy. It signaled the end was in sight to a months-long partisan battle that had deadlocked the political system of the United States, alarming its international allies, shaking financial markets and diminishing the US global image. On the overall basis we are neutral on the global phenomena and expect Indian market trade with support seen near 5420 and any positive breakout would be expected only after 5550.
