At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 23,263.90 up by 3.25%

The Indian equity markets experienced a significant surge, with the NSE Nifty 50 displaying impressive gains, closing over 3.25% higher at a record-breaking 23,250 points. This surge was largely attributed to the optimistic projections of exit polls forecasting a third consecutive term for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government.

The Nifty 50 reached all-time highs, with remarkable intraday gains, buoyed by increases across major sectors, including notable upticks in small- and mid-cap stocks. Market sentiment soared amidst expectations of a potential two-thirds majority for the ruling party, despite historical variations in exit poll accuracy.

On June 3, the Dalal Street celebrated the exit poll outcomes, witnessing Indian equity markets surge over 3%. Factors such as robust GDP data, promising monsoon forecasts, increased GST collections, and positive global market trends further fueled bullish sentiment. The Nifty opened with a significant gap-up, closing at 23,263.90, marking a substantial gain of approximately 733 points.

Top performers in the rally included PSU Banks and Energy sectors, driven by anticipation of continued reforms and potential re-rating of PSU stocks. Market optimism is anticipated to persist, fueled by sidelined inflows from the past three months.

Looking forward, the market will closely monitor key economic indicators, including GDP growth and budget implementation, to sustain the current bullish momentum. As investors await the election results, the buoyant market sentiment reflects confidence in the resilience and growth potential of the Indian economy.

The Bank Nifty commenced trading on a positive note, opening in the green and witnessing a notable surge of 4.07%. This upward momentum persisted throughout the trading session, culminating in a closing figure of 50,979.95, signaling robust performance and investor confidence in the banking sector.

Likewise, the BSE Sensex displayed remarkable strength, recording a significant uptick of 3.39% and concluding the day in the green at an impressive high of 76,468.78.

All sectors closed on a positive note, underscoring widespread investor confidence. The oil and gas sector experienced remarkable growth, surging by 6.83%. Leading the charge, GAIL (India) Ltd. saw a substantial increase of 12.60%, highlighting its robust performance. Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd. followed closely, with an impressive gain of 8.80%, while Adani Total Gas Ltd. posted a commendable rise of 8.34%. Notably, there were no declines within this sector today, signaling a uniformly positive trend.

Rupee Surges to Over Two-Month High Amid Positive Economic Signals

The Indian rupee surged to its highest level in over two months, closing at 83.14 against the US dollar on Monday. This significant uptick of 28 paise was attributed to several positive factors, including robust domestic macroeconomic indicators, increased foreign investment inflows, and the depreciation of the US dollar against major Asian currencies.

Analysts attribute the rupee’s strong performance to encouraging domestic economic data, coupled with sustained foreign capital inflows. Furthermore, the decision by the (Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries)OPEC+ alliance to maintain current oil output levels contributed to lower crude oil prices, which in turn supported the Indian currency.

Trading within a range of 82.95 to 83.17 during intra-day deals, the rupee finally settled at 83.14 against the dollar at the interbank foreign exchange market. This marks a notable improvement from its previous close, further bolstered by the positive sentiment in domestic markets following exit poll predictions favoring the incumbent BJP-led government for a third consecutive term.

Previously, the rupee last closed at 83.13 against the dollar on March 21, surpassing the 83.00 mark on March 18. Monday’s surge represents the highest single-day gain since November 15, 2023, underscoring the currency’s resilience amidst favorable market conditions.

As the Indian rupee continues to exhibit strength, supported by a buoyant domestic market and favorable global economic factors, investors remain optimistic about its performance in the foreseeable future. Meanwhile, fluctuations in the dollar index and Brent crude prices will continue to influence currency markets, warranting close monitoring for potential impact on the rupee’s trajectory.
