The market closed a volatile session marginally higher on May 22, the day before the Lok Sabha election 2019 result on May 23.

India VIX moved up by 7.73 percent to 27.63 levels hitting a new record high of 30.18, the highest levels in 44 months since September 2015.

Traders turned cautious following fresh record highs on indices on Monday after exit polls indicated the ruling party may get a second term, experts said, adding wild swings on either direction are also expected on election results scheduled on May 23.


The BSE Sensex gained 140.41 points at 39,110.21 while the Nifty 50 rose 28.80 points to close at 11,737.90 and formed small bullish candle which resembles a Doji kind of pattern on the daily scale.

"As tomorrow is result announcement date of General Election-2019 and extreme volatile movement cannot be ruled out," Shabbir Kayyumi, Head of Technical Research, Narnolia Financial Advisors told Moneycontrol.

Moreover, index trading above 11,800 will accelerate up move taking it higher towards 12,000 levels; at the same time a close below 20 DMA placed at 11,514 will push prices lower towards 11,400 levels, he said.

Higher VIX could continue to keep a volatile swing in the market but a sharp cut in VIX cannot be ruled out after the outcome of election result as per the Options property, Chandan Taparia of Motilal Oswal said.

Among sectors, banks, auto, metals and pharma closed higher while IT and FMCG fell sharply. The broader markets ended mixed with a flat close for Nifty Midcap 100 index. The Nifty Smallcap 100 index gained half a percent.
