"Sensex hitting a new high is warranted. Q2 earnings are better-than-expected, good rains will push our farm income, and the US has decided to hold off on QE until next year," said Shrinivas Viswanath, Cofounder RKSV.

He further added that "Although FIIs are on buying spree, the rupee continues to remain weak. This shows that there is still room for improvement and the market is awaiting to see how inflation and the twin deficits will be tamed. If those concerns are addressed by the government, we can surely expect the rupee to strengthen and the market to reach new highs."
