Stock market ideas: The stock market witnessed a significant surge on Monday, with Nifty soaring by approximately 3% and Sensex skyrocketing by 2,778 points. This remarkable rally was seemingly driven by heavy short-covering by Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs), following the exit polls that caught the market off guard by forecasting a resounding victory for the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).
According to an ET report, traders enthusiastically embraced the “Aayega To Modi” slogan as an investment approach, eagerly acquiring Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s preferred Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) in their entirety.
Across the board, all sectoral indices were engulfed in a sea of green, while the India VIX, Dalal Street’s fear gauge, plummeted by 20%.

Neeraj Chadawar of Axis Securities expressed optimism, stating, “If the Lok Sabha results on 4th June materialize as per the Exit Poll direction, our country will likely enter a “Golden Phase” of political stability and policy continuity. The Indian economy is in a sweet spot of growth and remains the land of stability against the backdrop of a volatile global economy. With this expectation of political stability and policy continuity, the prospects of the Indian economy appear notably brighter and more promising in the upcoming years.”
Exit polls, averaging results from 12 surveys, project the NDA to secure 367 seats in this election, surpassing its previous tally of 353 in the 2019 polls. Even the most conservative estimate predicts a minimum of 316 seats for the alliance. Although the NDA may not achieve its ambitious ‘Abki Baar 400 Paar’ goal, traders anticipate the Nifty to surpass the 24,000 mark this week.
