The way FII’s are selling since last month we can assume that they were aware of the new variant and hence they booked their portfolio on higher levels. The COVID new variant is not that harmful which is proved globally but still, FII’s are selling and the reason behind this can be inflation issues in the future and RBI may start increasing interest rates.

FII’s are selling huge since the last few days and hence any bounce in the market is not sustainable and is sold out. These figures are about to worry for Indian markets. If Indian markets want to go towards all-time high levels then FII needs to start buying.

January month is normally known as a pre-budget month and big moves are possible on any side. We will keep watch on data of FII’s whether they start buying or continue with their selling. They have bought it on 31st December but we need to wait and watch for some more days if they buy further or again start selling.
