Equity investors became richer by over 10.43 lakh crore in the past five days, as markets continued their momentum helped by foreign fund inflows.

The market capitalisation of BSE-listed firms have surged from 10,43,216.79 crore to 2,62,37,776.13 crore in the last five trading sessions (March 29-April 6).

This week, equity markets were closed on 4 April, 7 April for Mahavir Jayanti and Good Friday respectively. Last week, stock markets were closed on Thursday for Ram Navami.

The BSE Sensex has jumped 2,219.25 points or 3.85 per cent in the past five trading sessions. The Nifty rose by 3.52 per cent in the past five trading sessions.

According to market analysts the benchmark indices have rallied aided by improved overseas fund inflows and positive global cues.

"The Indian equity market saw gains for the second week in a row after a protracted period of underperformance, thanks to stable global cues, FII buying amid valuation comfort, and signs of a worldwide peak in interest rates," said Santosh Meena, Head of Research, Swastika Investmart Ltd.

On Thursday, the BSE Sensex had climbed 143.66 points or 0.24 per cent to settle at 59,832.97 after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) unexpectedly kept the benchmark rate unchanged.

The Nifty 50 had risen 0.24 per cent to settle at 17,599.15 on Thursday.

Umesh Kumar Mehta, CIO of SAMCO MF, said RBI in its act to maintain an equilibrium of growth and inflation has judiciously opted to keep the rates unchanged at 6.5 per cent, diverging from the Fed.

"Equity markets had already started consolidating but now since the interest rates are also near the peak cycle, it is an ideal launching pad of a new bull market locally and globally," Mehta added.
