Global markets:

Overseas, Asian stocks are trading lower after the U.S. Federal Reserve hiked rates by 25 basis points as widely expected. Japanese markets are closed for a holiday Thursday.

U.S. stocks ended lower on Wednesday, reversing gains after comments by Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell left investors wondering what the U.S. central bank's next move would be with interest rate hikes.

The U.S. Federal Reserve hiked rates by 25 basis points as widely expected, bringing the federal funds rate range to 5%-5.25% ? its highest level since August 2007. The Fed raised rates for a 10th time in this tightening cycle, as was widely expected. The central bank also signaled a pause to the campaign could come.

Foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) bought shares worth Rs 1,338.00 crore, while domestic institutional investors (DIIs), were net sellers to the tune of Rs 583.99 crore in the Indian equity market on 3 May, provisional data showed.
