Market rundown by Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services   "Market traded range bound as all eyes turned cautious ahead of tomorrow’s Karnataka state election verdict and CPI inflation data later in the day. WPI inflation accelerated to 3.18% in April due to surge in fuel and food prices which may have a negative impact on CPI inflation and is expected to surge to 4.41% vs 4.28% in March. Consequently, rupee & bond yield will continue to witness volatility."
