Indian Stock Market: 8 Key Overnight Changes as Asian Markets Surge on Fed Rate Cut Hopes

Asian markets traded positively, following gains in the US stock market after weak economic data increased hopes for interest rate cuts by the Federal Reserve.

In India, market sentiment improved after National Democratic Alliance (NDA) leaders pledged support for Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to form a government for a third term.


On Wednesday, the Indian stock market saw a strong recovery with the main indices gaining over 3%. Investors were optimistic about political stability and supportive policies.

The Sensex jumped 2,303.19 points, or 3.20%, to close at 74,382.24, while the Nifty 50 rose 735.85 points, or 3.36%, to 22,620.35.

“We expect the market to focus on the formation of the government, particularly key cabinet positions like Finance, Defense, Roads, Energy, Commerce, and Railways. With the election behind us, attention should return to market fundamentals,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head of Retail Research at Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.
