In the news from the macroeconomic space, reversing their five-month buying trend, overseas investors have pressed the exit button in July and pulled out a net Rs 37.6 billion from the Indian capital markets. The sell-off is because multiple headwinds, including the super-rich tax announced in Budget 2019-20.

As per the latest depositories data, foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) pulled out a net sum of Rs 143.8 billion from equities during July 1-26, but invested Rs 106.2 billion in the debt segment, taking the total net outflow to Rs 37.6 billion.

In addition, sub-par monsoon in key areas, lackluster earnings season, slowing domestic growth and weak rupee added to the concerns of FPIs, the reports noted.
