Nifty Bank experienced an intraday decline of nearly 5,000 points or 10 per cent on Tuesday as investors made mincemeat of the markets following poll trends that indicated the INDIA alliance was fighting hard around half past noon against the exit polls that had handed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led NDA alliance a resounding victory.

In addition, the state-run State Bank of India (SBI) had a significant role in the collapse. SBI plummeted by an enormous 19 per cent, reaching an intraday low of 732. The counter's market capitalization decreased to little over 7 lakh crore on the BSE after surpassing 8 lakh crore at its all-time high.

“Today, Bank Nifty experienced a sharp decline, finding support near its 200-day EMA at 46,200. Due to uncertainty surrounding the election results, we may observe additional selling pressure if Bank Nifty falls below its 200-day EMA. Consequently, 46,200 will serve as an immediate support level, while 48,000 will act as the first resistance level for Bank Nifty," said Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst, LKP Securities.
