Sensex, Nifty rangebound; Sesa Sterlite, M&M top gainers

Dhananjay Sinha, Emkay Global Financial Services says market needs to be looked at from the context of what was reported in the third quarter earnings and the recent political developments pertaining to Delhi election outcome and Bihar, which impinges on the positivity of the current government.

The market has been running up significantly higher implying that has become expensive just on the basis of downgrades. Therefore, one needs to be a bit circumspect of what the market is currently pricing and what can be evolved going forward with Budget in prime focus, Sinha adds.
