Indian markets started the week on a muted note, with NIFTY50 and Sensex closing nearly 1% lower on Monday. The decline was largely driven by bank stocks, while both Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs) and Domestic Institutional Investors (DIIs) remained net buyers on Monday as well.


FIIs and DIIs remain net buyers on Monday

After reaching new lifetime highs, Indian benchmark indices tumbled nearly 1% lower on Monday. Global markets also retreated from previous week gains, with the US S&P 500 and Nasdaq closing in the red, while the Dow Jones was marginally positive. Asian markets are trading mixed, with Japan’s Nikkei down (-0.6%), while the Hang Seng and Kospi indices traded nearly half a percentage point positive.

The broader indices like Nifty Smallcap 100 fell nearly 2% after the regulator tightened risk disclosures on mutual funds in smallcap & midcap schemes. Despite the gloomy picture on the indices, FIIs continued their buying in Indian markets. FIIs & DIIs were both net buyers for equities in Indian markets to the tune of ₹7400 crore together on Monday as well.
