Siddhartha Khemka, Head of Retail Research at Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd., stated that Indian stocks surged more than 400 points to reach all-time highs in celebration of the BJP’s resounding victory in the three states.
“The market momentum was enhanced by the BJP’s resounding victory, solid macroeconomic data, and a reduction in expectations for interest rates globally. From its low of 18,837 on October 23, the Nifty has increased by 1,865 points, or 10%.
Given how strong the current pre-election rally is, we anticipate that market sentiment will continue to rise. We anticipate continued success in BFSI, Industrials, Real Estate, Auto, and Consumer Discretionary given the government’s emphasis on long-term capital expenditure in these and other important sectors, Khemka continued.
