What happened in the Indian stock market today?

On May 31, 2024, the Indian stock market showed slight gains, breaking a five-session losing streak.

Sensex settled 76 points, or 0.10 per cent, higher at 73,961.31. The Nifty 50 closed 42 points, or 0.19 per cent, up at 22,530.70.

Attention shifted to the final phase of General Election 2024 on June 1, followed by exit poll results. Vote counting begins on June 4, with results expected later that day. 

Recent market pressure stems from election-related nervousness, amplified by foreign institutional investors’ capital outflows, mixed global cues, dim rate cut expectations, and geopolitical concerns.
