FIIs net buyers

Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) were net buyers in the capital market as they purchased shares worth ₹921.10 crore on Wednesday, as per provisional exchange data.

“Domestic equities look to be good as of now. Increased optimism about economic recovery with continuous fall in daily caseload in second COVID wave and improvement in recovery rates has already led domestic equities to new highs,” said Binod Modi, Head Strategy at Reliance Securities.

Further, the beginning of gradual withdrawal of restrictions by states, which hints at improvement in economic indicators from the current month, also lifted market mood, he added.
