“Nifty made another new high at opening on June 13, gave up some of these gains and remained rangebound through the day. The fact that the Nifty keeps making new highs every day is assuring, but it is not able to hold on to the entire gains. Nifty could stay in the 23,297 – 23,481 band in the near term,” said Deepak Jasani, Head of Retail Research at HDFC Securities.

Here are key domestic and global market cues for Sensex today:
