He further said that the net flows this week cannot be construed as a change in trend as the uncertainties on the global and domestic front persists.

“This could be a tactical allocation by FPIs, and one needs to watch the flow trends in the coming weeks to better access their investment pattern,” he said.
For the first half of November FPIs have been sellers in banking and even in performing sectors like IT, noted V K Vijayakumar, chief investment strategist at Geojit Financial Services.

He further added that most foreign brokerages have a sell call on India on concerns of stretched valuations.

Going forward, an anticipated higher quantum of tapering by the US Federal Reserve may lead to emerging markets including India receiving reduced foreign investments, said Shrikant Chouhan, head (equity research-retail) at Kotak Securities.

The only positive part is falling crude prices, he added.
