The global market is still weak! But institutions keep buying in India!
Good Morning Everyone, Yesterday we saw a V-shaped recovery in the Nifty supported by the huge buying by both FIIs & DIIs. There is nothing really special driving the market, but institutions buying continuously at such high levels adds to optimism in the market.
Foreign institutional investors have been bullish on Indian shares for much of 2021. FIIs have invested a net Rs 64,202 crore in Indian equities so far this year. That is more than double the net purchases of Rs 28,347 crore in the first nine months of 2020.

The US markets tried to rebound after the big fall in previous days, but could not recover, and in fact, closed down again before the FED meet this evening. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 50.63 points, or 0.15%, to 33,919.84, the S&P 500 lost 3.54 points, or 0.08%, to 4,354.19 and the Nasdaq Composite added 32.50 points, or 0.22%, to 14,746.40.
Investors are waiting for the end of this week's Fed meeting that may shed light on when its massive purchase of government debt will begin to ease.
The Nikkei 225 in Japan slipped 0.3 percent in early trade. In Australia, the S&P/ASX 200 dipped fractionally. MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan traded 0.13 percent lower.
Trends on the SGX Nifty indicate a flat start to the market, which will trigger some buying in the market and hence will rise to higher levels, but then today being Wednesday (A day before weekly expiry) we can see huge volatility in the market.
FII and DII data
Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) net bought shares worth Rs 1,041.92 crore, while domestic institutional investors (DIIs) net purchased shares worth Rs 2,167.62 crore in the Indian equity market on September 21
