Bloodbath On D-Street, Investors Lose Rs 9 lakh Crore In 15 minutes As Sensex Crashes 2,800 Points; Adani Group Stocks Crash, Shares Fell By 17%, Sank ₹1.5 lakh Crore.

Ahead of the much-anticipated Lok Sabha election results announcement, investors took a cautious approach, leading to a significant downturn in the stock market on Tuesday. The D-street opened sharply lower, influenced by declines in major stocks such as Reliance Industries and key financial companies; also taking a hit were shares of Adani Group.

D-Street opened today apprehensive and less cheerful due to a marked difference in election results compared to the exit polls.

As investors adopted a risk-averse stance ahead of the Lok Sabha election results announcement later in the day, the Sensex opened over 1,600 points lower on Tuesday, dragged down by heavyweights Reliance Industries and financial stocks.

By 9:20 am, the BSE Sensex was trading 2,800 points, or 3.66%, lower at 73,669.28.

The Nifty50 had dropped 809 points, or 3.6%, to trade at 22,409; at the same time, the volatility gauge, India VIX, spiked 20% to 25 levels.

The market capitalization of all listed companies on the BSE declined by Rs 8.78 lakh crore to Rs 417.13 lakh crore.

Within the Sensex pack, Reliance Industries and HDFC Bank alone contributed to a 565-point decline in the index. Other stocks dragging the index down included L&T, SBI, ITC, NTPC, and Power Grid.

Despite this, earlier exit polls projected a significant win for Modi, which led to markets soaring to all-time highs on Monday as expectations of sustained economic growth buoyed investors.

Meanwhile, Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party-led NDA alliance surged to early leads, pulling ahead in more than 290 seats out of the total 543 in the lower house of parliament.

“With the 733-point rally in the Nifty yesterday, the market has already priced in a clear win for the NDA and a majority for the BJP. Only a dramatic deviation from this expected outcome will cause a major market shift,” said V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.

“Investors need not rush to buy today even if the results confirm the exit polls. Remain invested in large caps and consider some profit booking in small caps,” Vijayakumar suggested.
