Of Crash in Bitcoin, Correction in MidCap and SmallCap Indices and Top Stocks in Action Today
Wed, 17 Jan Pre-Open | Karan Janani, TM Team

Correction in the BSE MidCap and SmallCap Indices

The past year has seen the BSE MidCap and BSE SmallCap indices surging by 43.1% and 57.1% respectively. Taking a two year view these indices have produced mind-boggling return of 75.3% and 85.9% respectively.

This sharp run-up saw a decent correction yesterday as the MidCap and SmallCap index corrected by 1.7% and 2.2% respectively. Stocks such as National Aluminum Co, Federal Bank, IDFC Bank corrected by 7.9%, 7.5% and 6.4% respectively.

So, is the party in these indices nearing its end? The answer to this is not that simple. These indices have surged largely on the back of a hope rally. A strong recovery in the earnings would help sustain the expensive valuations at which these indices are trading currently. Provided the earnings do not recover, a crash like the one which we saw yesterday cannot be ruled out.

Bitcoin Crashes to Level Below US$ 12,000

Bitcoin is crashing and it has fallen to levels below US$ 12,000. The cryptocurrency has lost almost 40% of its value since Mid-December when it was trading at US$ 20,000.

The crash was mainly on the back of a news that South Korea is considering banning the trading of cryptocurrencies.

Over the last three weeks we've introduced you to Tama-Richard Churchouse. He's one of the world's leading experts on crypto currencies. And his man in India... The Cryptowallah, Prasheel Vartak.

In case you missed it, here's a cryptocurrency Q&A with Tama in The 5 Minute WrapUp. And cryptos in the Indian context by Prasheel.

According to Tama, depending on how things pan out over the next few years, massive gains could potentially be yours for the taking. These gains could come from cryptocurrencies or from the blockchain technology. Join us here to unlock the best ideas and insights about the enigmatic world of cryptos.
