News Tech: After a long nine months, foreign portfolio investors have turned net long in the Indian stock market again. In July, FPI bought shares worth Rs 4.989 billion in him, National Securities Depository (NSDL) data showed. Om Mehra, Technical His Associate at Choice Broking, said: September 2021 was the last year a foreign investor became a net buyer. So far in 2022, they have sold investments in India totaling Rs. 225,319 crore, of which Rs. 212,369 is from the equities segment.
Contrary to recent trends, the Indian stock market posted its best weekly performance in the week ended 22 July, marking its best week since February 2021. Indian stocks are now recovering quickly for the second week in a row. Over the last two weeks, Sensex and Nifty are up more than 7% cumulatively.
Tight monetary policy in advanced economies, including increased demand for dollar-denominated commodities, and a stronger US dollar have fueled a steady outflow of funds from the Indian market. Investors usually prefer stable markets during periods of high market uncertainty. In addition, the ongoing devaluation of the rupee and depletion of India’s foreign exchange reserves also weighed on weak market sentiment. India’s foreign exchange reserves have shrunk by more than $40 billion over the past six to seven months.
