Here’s a list of the top 5 gainers and losers this week in the large-cap space.

Inflation is much stickier than anticipated even a few months ago. Persistently high inflation is expected to force the Federal Reserve and other central banks to keep raising rates and to keep them at or near a peak longer to combat surging prices.

The IMF (International Monetary Fund) also envisions a 15% possibility of a “severe downside scenario,” often associated with a global recession, in which worldwide economic output per person would shrink.

According to data released by the National Statistical Office (NSO) on Wednesday, Retail inflation eased to a 15-month low of 5.66 percent in March, slipping below the upper threshold of the Reserve Bank of India’s medium-term 4+/- 2 percent target.

Looking at Indian stock markets, in the last 5 trading sessions, the frontline index S&P BSE Sensex climbed by 0.97%, going from the level of 59846.51 on 10th April to 60431 on 13th April. In contrast, the Nifty50 went from 17,624.05 on 10th April to 17,828 on 13th April.
