The Indian stock market this week (June 2 to June 8) had a roller caster ride, marked by full of political surprises and economic developments with the headlines indices hitting fresh record highs twice this week, first on Monday (June 3, 2024) after the exit poll predictions, and the second on Friday (June 7) after the RBI announcement of repo rate and ahead of the Modi 3.0 forming government.

However, amid these highs, the market also experienced a significant event. In the dramatic turn of events, on the final result of the Lok Sabha election 2024, the Indian stock market witnessed a drastic downturn. The stock market took a big hit, the worst since March 2020. On Tuesday (June 4) , it erased all the gains made on Monday. This downturn was primarily attributed to the disparity between exit polls predictions, which suggested that the BJP-led alliance is likely to win a two-thirds majority in the Lok Sabha. But as the official counting of the election came out, the BJP led NDA government lead tally but the seat count narrows.
