Persistent selling by FIIs. Here's why...

FIIs have largely stayed on sidelines this month, booking profits at every opportunity they get.


There are concerns with respect to the tapering of the easy liquidity after US Fed hinted at a sooner than expected rate hike.

That's not all. There are other concerns as well including rising crude oil prices, US bond yields, and challenges to the Chinese economy.

All this has kept FIIs from substantially investing in Indian share markets. It remains to be seen how the FII activity pans out in the coming months.
