FPI Investment: The confidence of foreign investors in Indian markets is increasing rapidly. For the first few months of this year, foreign investors remained pure sellers in the Indian markets, but now the trend seems to be returning towards buying. Its effect is also visible in the figures of FPI purchase for December.
How was the buying data of FPI investors till December 23
Foreign investors have invested a net Rs 11,557 crore in Indian equities so far in December, despite the re-spread of Kovid infection in some other countries including China and the fall in the stock market. Foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) made a net investment of Rs 11,557 crore in equities during December 1-23, according to depository data.
