To put them simply,
Foreign Direct Investment:
When General Motors Co. wants to establish a car manufacturing company in 
Japan by bringing in its own money from US (we usually call that money " 
capital"), it is called foreign direct investment.  It does not matter 
whether GM established a dummy company in Bermuda through which it sends 
money to Japan.
Indirect Investment
When an American (It does not matter whether it is individual or a company) 
buys shares of Toyota just for stock investment purpose, it is called 
"Indirect Investment".
