Selling happened due to these reasons
Let’s talk about the reasons for selling by foreign investors If we talk about it, then analysts are attributing this to the decent increase in US bond yields and increased uncertainty due to Israel-Hamas war. After controlling inflation to some extent in America, the US Federal Reserve has now stopped increasing interest rates. Before that the Federal Reserve was aggressively increasing interest rates. Due to which investors started selling from emerging markets. The increased uncertainty due to war since last one week has worsened the atmosphere.
