Meanwhile, the 10-year US Treasury yield has climbed to a 4-year high of 3.2 per cent. Experts say FPI outflows from Indian markets
this year are on expected lines, as the Fed had signaled its tightening plans in advance. Not just India, but Asian peers such as Indonesia, South Korea, Thailand, Taiwan and The Philippines have seen sharp FPI outflows this year. Most others, however, have seen positive flows into bond markets. Sharp inflows into mutual funds (MFs) largely helped offset FPI outflows from India. However, flows into equity MFs are moderating. If FPI outflows accelerate further, counter-balancing by MFs could be a challenge.
