From October 2021 to June 2022, FPIs only made withdrawals from the Indian markets. As far as September 2022 is concerned, FPIs started this month in a positive way. “Subsequently, the depreciating rupee and rising bond yields in the US and the Federal Reserve’s interest rate, led to pessimistic sentiment among foreign investors,” said Himanshu Srivastava, co-director-research manager, Morningstar India.
