The Indian stock market indices hit record highs on Monday, with the benchmark Sensex surging above the 77,000-mark and the Nifty 50 scaling above 23,400 level, amid upbeat sentiment.

In the month of June, the equity market will continue to track inflation data, actions and commentaries of key central banks, bond yields, crude price movement and geopolitical developments. The market focus will move beyond elections and the factors that would be relevant for the market would include the economic agenda of the new government and the FY25 union budget. 

“Robust FY24 GDP growth, healthy earnings growth, strong domestic flows, stable macro factors, control over inflation and above-normal monsoon expectation would continue to support the domestic equity markets. However, overall valuations remain on the higher side,” said analysts at Kotak Institutional Equities in a report.
