“The rise in main indices is justified considering the numbers that have come in the exit poll,” said Rusmik Oza, Head of Fundamental Research, Kotak Securities.

Expect Nifty 50 to retest the recent high of 11, 850 before May 23. Break out into a new zone would depend on whether BJP on its own is able to secure more than half the seats, Oza added.
