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

The flow of foreign institutional investors continues to be fairly weak in India whereas the domestic flows supported the markets this week. While FIIs were net sellers of Rs 5,524.52 crore in the Indian Equities market, DIIs were net buyers to the tune of Rs 4,862.62 crore so far this week. The Fed decision to hike rates next year is likely to accentuate the outflow from Indian equities. Domestic flows and the spread of the omicron virus will hold the key to the market’s next course.

In the period from Friday i.e. December 10 to December 16, the blue-chip NSE Nifty 50 index fell 1.50% from 17,511.30 to 17,248.40. Similarly, the S&P BSE Sensex registered a decline of 1.51% from 58,786.67 to 57,901.14.
