At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 21,884.50 down by 5.93%

On June 4, the NSE Nifty 50 commenced on a downward trajectory, plunging by a staggering 5.93% and closing below the crucial 22000 mark. Dalal Street experienced a tumultuous day as market participants grappled with unexpected election results, with the BJP-led NDA securing a mandate but failing to secure the anticipated stronger majority. This resulted in the largest single-day fall for the Nifty50 index since March 23, 2020, shedding 1379.40 points to settle at 21,884.50.

Volatility soared, evidenced by the India VIX skyrocketing by 50% to surpass 31 intraday, marking the most significant surge in the volatility index in at least nine years. Panic selling dominated the morning session, followed by a brief mid-session recovery that was short-lived as another wave of selling in the final session further dragged down the index.

Sector-wise, profit booking was witnessed across major indices, with PSU Banks and Energy sectors suffering the most significant losses. The unexpected election outcome triggered fear selling, reversing recent market gains. However, expectations of coalition stability under the BJP’s leadership tempered substantial downside risks in the medium term.

Moving forward, markets anticipate a shift in political policy focusing on social economics, likely benefiting the rural economy. However, caution is advised in sectors such as power, capital goods, real estate, and industrials in the near term, despite robust long-term growth prospects. Amidst uncertainties, investors seek policy continuity and economic fundamentals to drive India’s long-term structural growth trajectory.

Bank Nifty: Down by 7.95%

The Bank Nifty and BSE Sensex experienced significant declines, mirroring the turmoil seen in the broader market.

Likewise, the BSE Sensex followed suit, registering a 5.74% decrease, concluding the day at a low of 72,079.05.

In the sectorial front, the Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) sector has shown remarkable gains, rising by 0.95%. Leading this surge, Dabur India Ltd. experienced an impressive increase of 6.46%, while Hindustan Unilever Ltd. followed closely with a rise of 5.78%.

Conversely, the Oil & Gas sector faced significant challenges, emerging as the top loser with a steep decline of 11.80%. Within this struggling sector, Adani Total Gas Ltd. suffered a notable loss of 18.53%, and Oil & Natural Gas Corporation Ltd. saw a decrease of 16.23%.

Foreign Institutional Investors/Foreign Portfolio Investors bought stocks worth Rs. 26,776.17 and sold stocks worth Rs. 39,212.39, resulting in a net value of -12,436.22 (Rs. Cr.).

Rupee Plunges Amid Election Uncertainty and Market Sell-Off

On election result day, the rupee tumbled by 45 paise to close at 83.59 against the US dollar, reflecting investor anxiety as the ruling BJP faced electoral uncertainty. This depreciation from the previous close of 83.14 on Monday highlights the market’s reaction to the potential lack of a decisive majority in the Lok Sabha elections.

The rupee’s decline was exacerbated by a significant sell-off in domestic equities and a robust US dollar, which gained strength against major global currencies. At the interbank foreign exchange market, the rupee opened at 83.25, fluctuating between a high of 83.23 and a low of 83.59 during the trading session.

Foreign investors appeared cautious amid the political uncertainty, contributing to the currency’s fall. The dollar index, which measures the greenback’s performance against a basket of six major currencies, rose by 0.17% to 104.25, further pressuring the rupee. Additionally, Brent crude futures, the global oil benchmark, saw a decline of 1.88% to $76.89 per barrel, indicating broader market volatility.

The rupee’s performance underscores the sensitivity of currency markets to political developments and investor sentiment, particularly in emerging markets like India. As election results continue to unfold, the financial landscape remains vigilant, closely monitoring potential shifts in economic policy and investor confidence.
