12,000-mark for Nifty was already a matter of time, but it was Sensex which has shown surprising and hefty performance making many investors richer in just 1 day.
Amit Gupta, Co –Founder and CEO, TradingBells had already predicted Sensex to reach 40,000-levels. Gupta said, "If the prediction of the exit polls turn out to be true and NDA does come out with a clear majority, the markets might see new all time highs once again. That would be the best time to start booking profits on your longs while waiting for the right time to re-enter on dips."
Thereby, Gupta said, "Nifty can be seen going past 12,000 if NDA wins clear majority, Sensex may touch 39,900 – 40,000 . On the downside 11,500 becomes the support (current 50DMA) if the current exit poll results are sustained."

Interestingly, 40,000-mark is just the beginning of Sensex. In fact, experts have given a new target and that's even more amazing.
Romesh Tiwari, Head of Research, CapitalAim said, "Markets are expected to trade in a wide range of 2-3% before the trends of results, in the afternoon, comes out. Consensus on the big upward rally on the victory of BJP lead NDA can be used for unwinding long positions on market heavyweights like Reliance, HDFC, SBI etc. If early trends suggest BJP winning, then the markets may make new highs and the rally we have seen on Monday will continue. In that case Sensex can attempt to cross 41,500 and Nifty 12,300 and we can see profit booking at that level. Reaction of Midcaps and SmallCaps will be interesting to see as they are trading at better valuations than market heavy weights."
The counting so far reflects - NDA bagging majority with 337 seats, followed by 83 seats for Congress Party and 122 seats for others.
