On the political front, the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is all set to form the next government in Bihar after defeating the Tejashwi Yadav-led Mahagathbandhan in the assembly elections. The NDA won 125 seats, clearing the majority mark in the 243-member Assembly. The Mahagathbandhan or the Grand Alliance won 110 seats.

Global markets:

Overseas, Asian stocks are trading higher on Wednesday as hopes for a successful coronavirus vaccine lifted expectations of a swift reopening of the global economy.

In US, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose on Tuesday, building on its sharp gains from the previous session as a market rotation out of names that thrived during the pandemic and into stocks linked to an economic recovery continued. However, the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite struggled amid a sharp decline in major tech names.

Domestic markets:

Back home, domestic equity benchmarks ended at record high levels on Tuesday.

The barometer index, the S&P BSE Sensex, rallied 680.22 points or 1.60% at 43,277.65. The Nifty 50 index spurted 170.05 points or 1.36% at 12,631.10.
