FPIs pump Rs 3,700 cr in debt mkts in just 5 trading sessions

New Delhi - Foreign investors have put in over Rs 3,700 crore in the Indian debt markets in the last five trading sessions as interest rates are not increasing in the US.

This comes following a net outflow of Rs 12,750 crore in the last two months (February-March) probably due to the surge in interest rates increasing in home markets as well as INR depreciation outlook due to crude price and fiscal deficit.

Prior to that, foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) had pumped in over Rs 8,500 crore in January.

According to depository data, FPIs invested a net sum of Rs 3,706 crore (USD 570 million) in the debt markets during April 2-6.

Besides, they infused Rs 94 crore in the stock markets during the period under review.

Explaining the reason for inflow in debt markets, Harsh Jain, COO at, said interest rates are not increasing in a hurry in the US.

"March was a good time to sell for smart investors as yields were high in India which have reversed significantly in last few days and hence are attracting investments," he added.

Going ahead, both equity and debt inflows will see volatility in the ongoing financial year, in terms of investment by FPIs a result of global trade tensions, Fed rate hikes in US as well as elections in India,  Vidya Bala, head of MF Research at said.
