URGENT OPPORTUNITY: Top 5 Stocks That Could Potentially Give the First 50-100% Gains Very Fast

Speaking of the current stock market scenario, the last few months have witnessed the kind of shifts that most investors would recall as once in a lifetime.

The Sensex is up 34% from the lows in March 2020. At that time, it had declined by over 20%. That seemed to suggest the start of a bear market.

So, what's driving the markets?

As per Richa Agarwal, editor of our premium smallcap service Hidden Treasure, an important driver of this rally is the inflow from global funds, now that the global economies have opened the liquidity tap.

A lot of this money is coming to the mid and smallcap space.
