The Indian market is steadily growing and had allured domestic investor’s community and foreign investors group in the past.

One eminent concern in the matter is whether these foreign institutional investors (FIIs) regulate the Indian capital market. This project examines whether market movement can be explained by these investors and their impact on the capital markets. FIIs, because of their short-term nature, can have bidirectional causation with the returns of other domestic financial markets such as money markets, stock markets, and foreign exchange markets. Hence, the understanding of determinants of FII is very important for any emerging economy as FII exerts a larger impact on the domestic financial markets in the short run and a real impact in the long run.
