AFTER a long time, foreign institutional investors (FIIs) turned into net sellers in all segments of the capital market on Wednesday.
According to SEBI data, FIIs were net sellers in the equity, debt and derivatives market valued over Rs 1,350 crore.
The data released by SEBI said that FIIs were net sellers of Rs 57.90 crore in equity and Rs 535.40 crore in debt.
