The Indian markets are expected to open flat to negative on the back of mixed global cues.

The domestic markets on Wednesday ended slightly higher, way off their highs on the back of subdued Q3FY12 GDP growth of 6.1%, the lowest in almost three years, against the consensus estimate of 6.6%.

The GDP growth for Q2FY12 was 6.9% while that for Q3FY11 stood at 8.2%. The rupee, however, provided some respite by rising to its highest level in three weeks.
