On Friday (Foreign institutional investors) FII were net Sellers and have sold 3332 crores in the cash market. On the other hand (Domestic institutional investors) DII were net Buyers and have bought 4611 crores in the cash market.

The way FII’s are selling since last month we can assume that they were aware of this and hence they booked their portfolio on higher levels. We need to be cautious now as markets are overvalued fundamentally and the new COVID variant can bring lockdown as we are watching in big countries like Germany.
