Domestic equity benchmark indices closed in the red on May 14 amid weak global cues as investors sought clarity about the government's mega fiscal announcement of Rs 20 lakh crore.
Sensex closed the day with a loss of 886 points, or 2.77 percent, at 31,122.89 and Nifty settled 241 points, or 2.57 percent, lower at 9,142.75.
The Indian equity market is likely to witness a weak to flat opening on May 15 as there was no trigger for the market in Finance Minister's announcements and the market has to wait a little longer to get clarity of government's Rs 20 lakh crore fiscal stimulus, said experts.
