He said that the realization on the 10-year bond of America is an important contributor to the capital flow. The yield on bonds is increasing due to inflation. This will make the flow of capital sluggish.

Prediction will increase rapidly in 2021

S Ranganathan, head of research, LKP Securities, said the FPI’s stance was positive for Indian markets, as the IMF predicted India to be the fastest growing major economy in 2021. He hoped that the flow of FPI would be positive next month as well.
