Surge in number of demat accounts

Demat accounts saw a surge in popularity in December 2022, led by attractive returns from the equity markets, ease of account opening process and increased financial savings. The incremental account additions of such accounts were higher in December in comparison with the preceding three months.

The number of demat accounts rose to 108 m last month - a surge of 34% on yearly basis. The incremental additions stood at 21 lakh in December 2022, compared to 18 lakh each in October and November and 20 lakh in September.

There were also a lesser number of initial public offerings (IPOs) hitting markets in 2022 compared to the previous year. However as 2023 begins many companies are coming up.

But while the number of demat accounts in the country continues to rise - albeit at a slower pace - the count of NSE active clients has declined for six consecutive months. The active user clients in the industry as a whole rose 12% year-on-year basis, but fell 1% month-on-month to 350 m in December 2022.

FIIs are running away from Indian markets again

Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) continued to sell in Indian equities for 16 days in a row to the tune of over Rs 238 bn. So far in January, the selling is over Rs 174 bn in equities.

As per NSDL data, foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) outflow has also crossed over Rs 150 bn mark in domestic equities. The selling bias from foreign investors is likely to continue going forward.

An important trend in the market this month is the sustained selling by FIIs. FIIs sold for the 16th straight trading session taking the total sell figure to Rs 238.9 bn.

On Friday, FIIs sold around Rs 24.2 bn in Indian stocks. While they made their biggest selling so far in the current month on 11 January where the outflow stood at Rs 32.1 bn. Overall, in the week, the outflow aggregated to Rs 96.1 bn in Indian equities.

Beginning in 2023, we are already observing some correction to the Indian equity market's notable outperformance in the prior year.

The last time FIIs were net buyers was on 22 December 22 of last year. They have been net sellers from December 23, 2022, to date.

FIIs are selling in India and moving money to cheaper markets like China, Hong Kong, and South Korea where valuations are much lower. In 2022 FIIs were selling in China. This trend has changed to long China and short India.
