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

India’s economic growth in the current financial year is resilient and, together with the recovery in China, will power a 4.6% growth in Asia, up from 3.8% in the year before, the International Monetary Fund said in its regional economic outlook.

The IMF’s 5.9% growth projection for India for the current fiscal made in April is a downgrade of 0.2% from its January estimate, owing to turmoil in the financial system which in turn will likely hurt global growth.

The agency said Asia’s domestic demand has so far remained strong despite the monetary tightening, while the external appetite for technology products and other exports is weakening.

When looking at the Indian stock market, the S&P BSE Sensex, the frontline index, increased by 1.03% in the last four trading sessions, surging from 61,112.44 on April 28 to 61,749.25 on May 4. In contrast, the Nifty50 went from 18,065 on April 28 to 18,255.80 on May 4. 

Let's take a closer look at the top gainers and losers in the large-cap space during the last five trading sessions, which took place between April 28 and May 4.
