Stock markets have opened to dampened enthusiasm since morning, with the Sensex losing nearly 100 points and the Nifty 33 points.
This was however expected with the Economic Times warning that market sentiment would be muted with Parliament on Tuesday expected to get on to a stormy start and key legislation, such as the land acquisition bill and the goods and services tax bill, expected to run into significant opposition fire.
Moreover the depressed sentiment may further point to low expectations from Reliance Industries, Infosys and HDFC, who are expected to announce earnings results later this week.
