Indian markets witnessed a sharp selloff on Tuesday, June 4, erasing all of Monday's gains as early trends indicated that the Lok Sabha election results could be tighter than exit polls had predicted.

These unexpected trends in election results 2024 caused panic among investors, with both the frontline indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, witnessing their biggest single-day fall in more than two years. Sensex and Nifty 50 dipped 8% each.

All the sectoral indices were in deep red with the PSU stocks taking a huge beating.

Experts believe that the Indian stock market had factored in a significant majority for the NDA, but the present trends in results do not align with market expectations, spooking investors.

“The index has fallen by about 5% due to a weaker trend for the NDA in the poll counting. The market, which had begun to price in a landslide victory for the NDA, is witnessing a significant correction due to margin calls, as retail investors were carrying heavily leveraged positions. Recovery looks possible once the trend moves in favor of the BJP winning the election comfortably,” said Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst, LKP Securities.

According to him, support for Nifty 50 seems to be very fragile. Immediate support is visible at the psychological level of 22,000, below which the index might fall further towards 21,400-21,500.
