    Escalating trade war between the US and other major economies is threatening the stock markets around the world. Indian equities are likely to take cues from Wall Street, where the S&P 500 and Nasdaq suffered their steepest losses in more than two months overnight.

    The market opened lower on Tuesday with the BSE Sensex opening at 35,355 points and the NSE Nifty opening at 10,734 points following global peers as the trade war intensifies.
