Foreign institutional investors (FII) and domestic institutional investors (DIIs), FIIs & DIIs in short, are among the big movers and shakers of the equity market.

While FIIs invest in companies that are foreign to their country of origin, DIIs (mutual funds, etc.) invest in the companies listed on the local stock exchange of the country.

FIIs & DIIs are a powerful force and continue to have an impact on Indian share markets. Why you ask? Inflows by FIIs & DIIs into a stock gives investors' confidence in the company.

It must be added that in recent years, the influence of the cumulative retail investor base has grown.
