Stock market at record high; major FII outflow in 4 sectors in second fortnight of August

India’s stock market had a strong run in August with the S&P BSE Sensex consistently hitting record highs and gaining 9.4 percent, including almost 4 percent in the second fortnight, when foreign institutional investors sold a net Rs 6,063.76 crore of shares against net purchases of Rs 3,495.24 crore in the first fortnight.

“Initial selling in the previous month was primarily due to global factors turning negative like Chinese stance on metals price hike, increasing Covid third wave and uncertainty about US Fed’s taper roadmap,” said Narendra Solanki, head-equity research (fundamental) at Anand Rathi Shares & Stock Brokers. “All these factors led to a broad selloff in sectors and a larger selloff in sectors where we had already seen a sharp rally. So it appeared investors booked some profit.

V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services: A major global trend post the Covid outbreak and the consequent crash in March 2020 and the incredible market recovery since April is the arrival and dominance of retail investors. This trend  is robust and conspicuous in India. Retail investors have made money during this rally and continue to pour money into markets. A healthy development is the sustained increase in SIP inflows which have touched Rs 9923 crore during August. Retail investors in SIPs should stay put with a minimum investment horizon of 4 years since returns in the next couple of years may turn out to be below par due to high present valuations. 

Globally markets have taken a breather from the risk-on mode. India too is likely to follow suit. FIIs are back to selling mode. An important trend is Bank Nifty gathering strength. Jio Phone Next launch tomorrow will be keenly watched by the market.

China’s factory inflation hits 13-year high as materials costs soar

China’s factory gate inflation hit a 13-year high in August driven by roaring raw materials prices despite Beijing’s attempts to cool them, putting more pressure on manufacturers in the world’s second-largest economy.

The producer price index (PPI) rose 9.5% from a year earlier in August, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said on Thursday, faster than the 9.0% increase tipped in a Reuters poll and the 9.0% reported in July. That was the fastest pace since August 2008.
