Nifty hits all-time high of 20,000  

The Nifty hit an all-time high of 20,000 taking 51 trading sessions to get there after breaching the 19,000 mark on June 28. The move was on account of both local and FPI flows. FPI flows have been constrained in their China investments on account of the dire outlook for its economy. A portion of those flows have come to India. Year to date FPIs have invested $15.9 billion.
