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.

The Indian share market is largely driven by institutional money. They pour in huge sums into the market and account for a large chunk of the liquidity.

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

Tracking what FIIs & DIIs are buying can help you get a sense of broader trends and what's happening in the market.

You can start tracking the FII & DII shareholding activity with the help of Equitymaster's Powerful Stock Screener.

This tool also keeps track of what stocks foreign investors (FIIs) are buying and selling.
