"Exit polls results which indicate a clear victory for the NDA with around 360 seats completely removes the so-called election jitters which have been weighing on markets in May. This comes as a shot in the arm for the bulls who will trigger a big rally in the market on Monday. Largecaps in financials, capital goods, automobiles, and telecom are likely to lead the rally,” said VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist, Geojit Financial Services.

BJP-led NDA is forecasted to win 370 seats, according to an average of all exit polls. NDA had won 353 seats in 2019.

As per data released on Friday, India’s Real GDP grew at 7.8 per cent YoY in the March quarter of FY24 and at 8.2 per cent in FY24.  

“The bulls will be further emboldened by the better-than-expected 8.2 per cent growth in GDP numbers which came after market hours on Friday. Technically and fundamentally the market is poised for a rally,” he added.
