List of top 5 gainers and losers this week in the Large-cap space.

The market erased almost all of its last two week’s gains amid a broad market sell-off seen this week. Investors fretted, triggering profit-booking largely on account of weak global cues, rising inflationary concerns and tepid listing of Paytm shares. The spike in India’s wholesale price inflation to 12.54% for October month, from 10.66% in September on account of rising in crude oil prices also worried investors. The FIIs and DIIs both were net buyers to the tune of Rs 1,768 crore and Rs 3,927 crore respectively in the Indian equities market during the week.

In the period from Friday i.e, November 12 to November 18, the Nifty 50 index fell 1.86% from 18,102.75 to 17,764.80. Similarly, the BSE Sensex registered a decline of 1.73% from 60,686.69 to 59,636.01. 

Let us have a look at the top gainers and losers in the large-cap space during this period.
