Indian equity benchmarks were lacklustre as investors looked cautious as the winter session of Parliament kickstarts today.

The 30-share BSE Sensex was up 49 points to 18,509.25 and the 50-share NSE Nifty gained 12.5 points at 5,627.25.

Experts feel that the winter session is likely to be stormy with no major Bills passed. However, Independent Analyst, Ambareesh Baliga thinks that the market has already discounted that to a large extent .

Baliga is cautions on the market. "It's a no trade zone. We are in the region of 5,550 to 5,650. It’s better to stay out for a while. In case things move well and we are able to break 5,650 decisively on the upside then one can start buying, but till then one should just stay out," he adds.
