“Foreign investors are pumping out funds in large quantities while support from DIIs is helping the market to partially balance the pressure. A similar level of volatility can be expected to continue until global uncertainties settle down leading to a softening of FII selling,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.
As per the latest available data, foreign portfolio investors have pulled out equities worth Rs 9,345 crore from Indian markets in the month of April.
