Higher crude oil prices on easing trade tension worries as well as foreign fund outflows dragged the local unit.

The rupee has outperformed all currencies of major economies, except the Japanese yen.

However, the concern is that FPIs are net sellers as they net sold shares worth Rs 34.4 billion in the past four trading sessions.

One of the major reasons for the weakness in rupee is FPIs pulling out funds.

The reason for this are many.

From slowdown in the economy to the budget...

But, can the real reason be external?

In March this year, the Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) announced it would increase the weightage of Chinese A shares (stocks trading in mainland China) by 4 times. These shares form around 10% of total Chinese shares in the index.

FPIs investing in passive funds follow the MSCI EM index for investments in emerging markets.

A comparison of India's weightage with China in the MSCI EM index provides us clues on the recent outflows from FPIs.

It also explains the announcement to reduce promoter shareholding in the budget.

Will we see a similar FPI inflow into Indian stocks?

Will India be the Next Hot FPI Destination?

Looking at the recent inflow into the Chinese stock markets, it seems very likely.
