<strong>Nomura on India's trade deficit:</strong> Trade deficit remains stable as imports and exports continue to contract, Nomura noted. The brokerage added that contraction in imports is more pronounced than that of exports and it suggests a sharper slowdown in domestic demand versus global demand.
