As per NSE's data, FIIs buying value was at 9,789.47 crore and the selling value stood at 7,703.85 crore in Indian equities on the May 30th trade. Hence, FIIs bought 2,085.62 crore worth of equities.

According to S Ranganathan, Head of Research at LKP securities, on a day when the Volatility Index dropped below 12, it was an eventful trading session today as the month of May has witnessed cash market volumes surging towards a six-month high as the return of FII's pepped up domestic investors in search of Alpha in a month which defied the usual ' Sell in MAY and Go Away ' rhetoric.

He added, "As markets shrugged away inflation, supply-chain disruptions and a slowdown in certain discretionary spends, buoyant FII inflows of 450bn since April has powered the Bank Nifty to its yearly-high today ahead of the MSCI rejig tomorrow. The sight of 63K on the BSE SENSEX today was indeed music to Bulls who made Hay in May."

In the previous session, both FIIs and DIIs were net buyers with an inflow of 1,758.16 crore and 853.57 crore respectively.

Before selling on Tuesday, DIIs held a buying spree from May 19th to 29th. FIIs have held the buying momentum since May 19th.

Going ahead, Ajit Mishra, SVP - Technical Research, Religare Broking said, "Markets are gradually inching towards the record high however mixed global cues are capping the momentum. We feel the scenario may continue and that may keep the traders guessing on the sustainability of the trend. Having said that, traders should maintain a positive tone till Nifty holds 18,250 and proactively manage their positions."

To investors, during Wednesday's trading session, Rohan Shah, head technical analyst at Stoxbox said, "intraday traders can look for long opportunities only above 18,700 if the closing comes above 18,700 in 15 min chart. Traders can look for fresh shorts only if nifty breaks the 18,500 level & remains below for 15 min to ensure short."

So far in May month, FIIs inflow stood at 24,450.58 crore --- highest monthly buying of 2023. On the contrary, DIIs are net sellers in the current month with an outflow of 777.83 crore.
