Nifty Trend Analysis – FII vs DII Chart

Nifty trend analysis

In the month of April, FIIs sold 6627 Cr and DIIs bought 9247 Cr. Though it suggests cautionary approach, DIIs have strongly bought into the market and may only be a case of FIIs taking some profit off the table.

It is still an important parameter to keep in your watch list.

Important Info:

  1. Nifty PE ratio is currently at around 23 and many analyst have started to advice Investors to take out their positions and be on the sidelines. But high PE ratio does not necessarily indicate overvaluation. If further earnings are better with the forthcoming quarterly results of remaining companies, it will adjust its valuation automatically.
  2. Current trend likely to continue for a longer timeframe unless we have some unexpected  disastrous global or domestic event in the foreseeable future.


My personal view for Nifty trend in May is continuation of current uptrend with minor corrections. The probability of any corrections likely to be bought in is high.

Globally, the current downside risks can be triggered by a war like situation.

No major triggers for the markets for sharp movements in either direction. Markets likely to be range bound between 9250-9400 levels

No doubt there is a level of greed creeping into the market but as traders, we should not be very worried about fundamentals and emotions in the market.

Focus on trading the trend as per your technical analysis.
