Indian stock markets may see a strong up move this week amid results presenting a good show by the BJP in state assembly elections, experts said.
The results of the four state elections held recently will be a major trigger for the Indian stock markets in the near-term, they added.
The BJP is set for a clear majority in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, while in Delhi it is emerging as the single largest party. It is neck-and-neck with Congress in Chattisgarh.
"The state election results outcome would be positive for the stock markets in the long-run. Markets were expecting a 4-0 win for the BJP.
"Stock markets would definitely see a gap-up opening on Monday and may hit an all-time high level. Now, the next big trigger for the stock market would be the general election in 2014," said Paras Bothra, Research Head, Ashika Stock Brokers.
Enam Financial's Vallabh Bhansali said however that it is not a case that the market likes Congress or BJP government.
The market actually likes a stable government, he said, adding that the market had complaints about the existing government because economic reforms were not moving.
BJP has given a clarity about their leadership team which has helped them win over the market, Bhansali noted.
Besides, on the macro front, the industrial production data for October and Consumer Price Index (CPI) for November, key figures ahead of the RBI's December 18 policy review, would be announced on Thursday.
"Markets would open higher on Monday. Investor sentiment is at present positive. However, profit-booking may also happen at higher levels. People are at large looking for a Gujarat like model of government and growth in the country.
This is the reason BJP has shown good performance in all the four states where elections held recently," said Gajendra Nagpal, CEO and Founder, Augment Financial Services.
